Bears in Girdwood!

Bear sightings have increased this past week. A sow and cubs have been frequenting the berry patches, and (unfortunately) this small yearling seems to be struggling a bit, resorting to scavenging.

Our guide Lisa Portune caught this big blackie in action just outside her house. Bear-proof trash cans do work!
