Double Vision

After leaving Mt McKinley Princess Wilderness Lodge heading for Denali National Park in Alaska, I snapped the train snaking its way through the rich undergrowth. To snap this I lent outside the vestibule (which is used especially for snapping pictures if you can find a space) and caught the reflection of the train on a bridge as it rounded a corner.013_1859

Too Much To Bear

At this time of the year (most) Black Bears hunt for fresh salmon in the crystal clear waters of Alaska. They wait and wait – concentration is the key word. At times they take up different positions in the hope the salmon will be more plentiful. They hunt, they catch and usually go into the forest to devour them. Then they get stuck into a feed of berries and grass. After that, I was told, they fall asleep. A few hours later they start the whole process again. I snapped this one concentrating in Ketchikan at Neets Bay. 013_8715
