The world could use a lot more beautiful things and a lot less violence and pain.
I just returned from a 10 day trip in Southeast Alaska, where I saw my first Grizzly Bear in the wild.
We watched this bear forage for roots, grass and other plants for almost an hour from our boat, 60 feet from shore.
It's not often that I post images of critters, because it's rare that I get close enough to get a great shot with the equipment I have.
On this particular day in Wyoming, my Dad, brother and I were driving over a bridge into the town of Moose when we noticed a crowd of people standing on the bridge. We ran over to discover a bull moose, standing 10 feet below us, chilling and eating greens along the riverside. I had never seen a wild moose and seeing him that close in Moose, Wyoming was even better.
