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!!!

Night Flights

Alyxandra and I went to the Night Flights. It was so much fun. Even though it was snowing, we had a wonderful time. The helicopter flight was a joint fundraiser between Coastal Helicopters and the Lion's Club with proceeds benefiting Children's Tumor Foundation and Lion's Sight Projects.
Here is a photo of the helicopter landing (lots of snow blowing)
This is Alyxandra getting ready to board the flight
Here she is sitting next to the pilot
I was sitting in the back seat. We couldn't use flash photography so it looks pretty dark. We flew over the Mendenhall Valley to view Christmas Lights from above. It was snowing so hard that they stopped flights briefly after ours until the weather was more cooperative. I heard they were able to raise lots of money for some great charities.
