A grizzly meanders down a stream in Icy Straight Point, Alaska.


bears, grizzlies, alaska

I am deeply concerned about environment, wildlife, and animal welfare, feeling a strong commitment to leaving the planet in better shape for new generations. Therefore, I support a number of charities that reflect those interests.

I have a degree in English and Library Science, but if I had my life to live over, I would have loved to have been a photographer, writer, and/or National Park ranger.

    Wonderful capture! It is always exciting to see them in the wild!

  • You’re right about that, Kathy. We can see animals in zoos, but when you see one in the wild, it’s always special. Thanks for the comment.
