About Town

Just when I was getting embarrassed by our "way fun life", Mr. X caught the crud that's circulating around town. This basically means everything has come to a screetching halt. Hiking has been limited to what I can do on my lunch hour a.ka. the Flume Trail.

Last Monday, I exited the trail to see Sasquatch crossing the street. I looked again and recognized Bigfoot was really a black bear hugging a telephone pole, getting a good scratch. Some nice lady I walked past, kept telling her young daughter that it was a "little bear". Since it was at least 8 feet tall, I disagreed with her assessment. Of course, my opinion may have differed based on the fact that they were getting in their car and I was headed, on foot, toward the bear.


  1. and you kept walking towards him??

  2. Wow! I wouldn't know what to do!

  3. What happened? Did you walk right by him?! Mike and I went to Whistler this month for our anniversary and I thought of your numerous times as there are bear signs and bear proof garbage cans everywhere. And then on our second day there, we were biking on a trail and saw a bear!! I was not nearly as calm as you seem to be as you recount bear sightings :).

    I enjoy reading about all your "Alaskan adventures." You really do live in a beautiful place!


I love comments.
