Welcome back – Grizzly bear, Alaska.

Brown bear, or grizzly bear, Katmai National Park, Alaska.

Hey Folks

Welcome back to the journal. I apologize for such a lengthy delay between posts. It’s been a lot of time in the backcountry, and very little time at the computer – which is just how I like it. I’m still traveling, in Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada, at the moment, riding ’round with my parents for a few weeks, before I return to Alaska.

I won’t go thru all the details of my travels for this last few months, other than to say it’s been awesome. The weather has been very nice this summer, for the most part, and the hiking second to none.

This photo is of a bear we call “Evander”, because he lost an ear in a fight a few years back. He’s one of the largest bears I’ve seen, and here he is in his prime, fat and ready for the winter. I’ve been fortunate to photograph him a number of times now, and every time I’ve run across him it’s been an awesome experience for me. Thanks Evander, for being such a cool bear!

I’ll try to write some more along the way here, and add some updates of my trips during the summer, and a few notes about what I’m up to.

Thanks folks

    Hey Mark,

    Thanks for checking in – I appreciate the concern. 🙂

    So far, I’m healthy and doin’ OK – I hope all’s well with you guys over there. I’m in a crazy rush now, as my folks are (demandingly) waiting me to be done so we can get on the road. It’s an amazing morning here in Jasper, and I’m having to catch up some quick email nonsense before we leave.

    Catch ya later.
