Alaska wildlife edition

This week’s positing is a bit different. I will share with you some pictures I have taken of the Alaskan wildlife over the past 6 years. None of these encounters have been with the snowieners. If it gets to happen I doubtfully will snap a picture.

Here are the big and powerful brown bears. Do not forget to look up, you can also find them in the trees!

Black bears are more common in our area. They are generally smaller than the brown bears.

The most common by far are the moose. Look how civilized, these are using the pedestrian crossing!

Bald eagles can also been seen throughout our hikes.

Less common are the fox and wolves, but they can be seen from time to time.

For all these reasons, the snowieners have to be very careful while hiking in the city.

    Wow, such beautiful creatures! Good thing the snowieners weren’t with you when you encountered them, though. I’ve heard we have a bit of a coyote problem in areas surrounding us. Makes me a little nervous when we go for walks sometimes. Stay safe! Much love, the Scottie Mom.

    Que bien vivir en esos entornos tan ligados a la Madre Tierra. Pero tiene sus riesgos. Take care!
