2016.09.01 - Svalbard - Day Two - Barentsburg - 60 photos

Our first expedition. We jumped on a ship that took us through the wonderful and unusual landscape to the only Russian town in Norway.

Around the spring and fall equinox, the sun is sort of always rising or setting. It is never very high above the horizon, and never very far below.

This is officially an arctic fox. If it was a cat, it would for a short time be the only cat on Svalbard, and it would quickly become an ex cat.
