bear watching

The photo above was taken from my car with an iPhone. 

Alaska wildlife is everywhere.  With that been said, it can sometimes be ‘hit or miss’ when seeing wildlife.  We had a friend in town that wanted to see bears.  The whole time he was here we did not see one bear until the day I drove him to the airport and on the side of the road was a sow and two cubs. 

traveling the ALCAN

My dad decided to spend the summer with us this year so we drove up the ALCAN together earlier this year in his new motor home.  It was a beautiful drive and full of wildlife.

There is a part of the trip that is covered with Bison.  They are everywhere. 

We traveled with Kimber, a little chocolate lab, that friends purchased in the lower 48 and we delivered.

halloween ::: treats and great alaska scenery

this dog thinks he is a lap dog. he always lays in the little beds and curls up on our laps and falls asleep. it’s a good thing we find it cute and funny. more so it is a good thing he is so adorable.

there are only 75 residents here and so I did not exactly load up on candy. if i were thinking ahead i would have made something fun.  next year, i guess. 

our little neighbors were the cutest little ninjas. it looks as if he hit the other one in the head but no violence occurred in the capturing of this image.

 seriously cute.

 he thinks he is scary but nothing that cute can scare me.

 the mother of the little ones. she’s a kitty. the dad is below…he dressed up as ‘dad’. 

 the turtles needed to gain power by jumping on the tramp.

 alaska is always beautiful. i should be more grateful to live here….the winter tries me at times.

a couple of caribou to end the drive.
