north to alaska

Alaska, the Last Frontier. What do you think of when you think of Alaska? Igloos? The song, "North to Alaska!"? Polar Bears? Dog sleds? Snow? Wildlife roaming the streets? Here in Juneau, we don't see a lot of wildlife, but we do see the occasional bear and deer. Bald Eagles are everywhere and always fun to watch.

We went for a drive to the Glacier yesterday, about a five minute drive from our home, and this bear crossed the street ahead of us. Just a small black bear, but still, a BEAR!

We were able to watch it for a bit before the dogs zeroed in on it and started barking.... This is when the bear looked back at us, going, what is THAT noise?! We decided it was best not to cause the bear any grief, and left.
