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!!!

Mushrooms Everywhere!!!

These little mushroom villages are EVERYWHERE...I need to get more pictures, they are so adorable. There is a huge variety of mushrooms, some of them have tops as big as plates.
Some of these are getting so big now with all the rain that they are literally knee high!
These are 'shelf mushrooms' they are really beautiful and they grow on the trees.
This mushroom is as big as a pumpkin and the same color too. We were out walking and a lady & her husband said they had just had this for dinner the night before. The nick-name for this shroom is 'chicken of the woods'. We passed on the taste-test.
Also, this is a little visitor that came up on the garden blocks. Yep, it is a little slug. EWE - but kind-of cute, huh?
