Thursday, March 25th

We enjoyed a nice afternoon by going for a walk. It was about 39 degrees when we set off. It was a clear and beautiful day on the trail.
Well, it's officially spring here because the brown bears came out of hibernation at the Alaska Zoo here in Anchorage. Great, now I'll have to be on the lookout for bears on the trails as well as moose. Speaking of moose, check out these pictures we snapped on the Chester Creek Trail this afternoon. If you're keeping score this is the 8th moose we've spotted. It was huge! It was also wearing some type of tracking collar. Probably was a problem moose. You know, if it killed one more person they would have to put it down. We snuck right on by it. It was only about 15 feet off the trail. I was such a chicken I tried not to even make eye contact with it! Of course, Greg wanted to get closer to get a better picture. Fear and common sense finally kicked in and he continued along the trail with me.
