lazy post snow day...
lots of spring waterfalls along the drive. always nice. stopped to take some photo's.
the dogs may have been a nuisance to that moose at times, but i think she was smart enough to realize that the dogs could be managed with a good charge or a kick...she also probably got that the bear count would be much less at the park due to the dogs.
a friend was visiting who is a bit wary of the bears in alaska. we went to university lake and i think she assumed that being in the middle of a large city like anchorage would mean no bear worries...as we got out of our cars there was a woman there with her bear spray out warning us there had just been a black bear encounter. at work this week a co-worker warned me she'd run into a black bear and three cubs this week on the trails off the jodphur loop. bears live in anchorage, both black and brown. you can never let your guard down once they are awake.
