So...I have always been a little fascinated with bears.  It started with the childhood fear of bears after watching a horror movie which basically was about a fake paw on a stick.  That propelled me to read everything about bears I could get my hands on before weekend mountain biking trips to Jasper.  Through that, I became fascinated with how gorgeous and playful they could be...but being well versed in how dangerous an encounter can be, I maintained that healthy fear.

One thing I wanted to do in Alaska was see the bears.  And...I have seen bears!  I promise to tell you all about it in the next blog...but it's almost my bedtime and so I will just share some bear photos...tales and tails to follow later!
