OK, just when you thought that you were safe, here's more Alaska pics.
This time it's animals.
My biggest hope was to see another moose. Last time I was up, they were everywhere. But this time, it seemed like I couldn't find a moose with a sack of moose crack and a moose call. So here's a bear instead. I already posted the Grizzly Bear from Denali once, but it was just so cool that I'm posting it again.
Then there were these caribou that were just swimming in Summit Lake, near Paxson.
Close, but no moose. Still pretty damned cool though.
How about that up in the tree? Is that a moose? Nope--it's a Bald Eagle.
These guys were pretty thick along the southern coast, but this was the only one that stayed still long enough for me to get good shots of him. I'm thinking I need a few of these guys around the Lair to help Murphy deal with the feral cat problem.
So ok, last day of the trip. 1400+ miles driven and I haven't seen a moose. Maybe they're all gone. So I'm now in freaking Anchorage (A suburb of Seattle that's just a short distance from Alaska) and what do I see on the airport road?
A MOOSE! Right there at the airport to see me off, too.
My trip was now complete. The last thing on the "to do" list had been checked off. A moose had been seen and photographed, with literally two minutes to spare. Rock on, Bullwinkle! (OK, it's a chick moose, I know...)
