Brown Bear

This picture was taken on a penninsula off Lynn Canal outside of Juneau by someone Mike works with.
I understand you don't want to mess with the Brown Bears. They are sure cute to look at, but they can be very hazardous to your health!!!

Finally Got Video of a Bear

Mike & I went up to the glacier today and saw a young black bear fishing for salmon in a stream and I didn't have the camera!!! We watched him for a while and the salmon seemed to be able to predict his movement and they were keeping their distance. He stretched, scratched and yawned and watched them for a while. We went home, got the camera and when we got back, the little guy was gone.
We walked down the trail a bit and this is what we saw...

It was raining but it didn't seem to bother this bear. A little old man was on the trail with us and he seemed pretty knowledgeable. I repeated a lot of what he said because I didn't know if the camera would pick up his voice (he was a little distance away) so that is why you hear me repeating the same thing he was saying.
