Say good-bye to the last full day of Winter 2013-2014 with a Google Map Street View of the Polar Bear Capital of the World — Churchill, CA. Churchill is situated at the estuary of the Churchill River at Hudson Bay. Prevailing northerly winds from the North Pole jet across the frozen Hudson Bay and chill it to a −14.8 °F for the January average. Churchill’s July average temperature is 54.9 °F.

October and early November are the best months to see polar bears. Thousands of polar bears wait on the vast peninsula until the Hudson Bay freezes. Then they begin their hunt for their main food source — ringed seals.
