Pretty cool pictures guys. I miss Alaska. I lived in Sitka in grade school.
No picture, but last week I was in the garage working on my splitboard setup with the garage door open. It started to rain and about 30 minutes later out of the corner of my eye I saw what at first I thought was my neighbors' dog coming in, but I didn't hear its foot steps from the dog claws, hmmm. I quickly told it to go home. It turned around and took off and that's when I realized it was a small brown bear. Poor guy, he was just looking for a place to get out of the rain. We don't have big bears in Colorado, but it sure made my night.

Bad ass Colin! In the Sierra last week I saw a Sow and her yearling about 50 yards away upwind before they saw me. I wanted to get the camera, but they were too close and I didn't want to startle Mamma too much so I called out to them and scared them off.
