alaska grizzly

Overeat on Thanksgiving? You’re not alone. It looks like this bear clearly enjoyed its meal and is ready for a nap. This photo was taken near Wonder Lake in Alaska’s Denali National Park by visitor Georgia Riddick and donated to the park.

Seeing grizzly tracks is one of my favorite backpacking sights.  It’s amazing how bear tracks can be found nearly everywhere.  If you follow the tracks long enough and you have some luck, eventually you’ll see what’s making them…..

Brown Bear Cub tries to stay on Mom’s back by David & Shiela Glatz
Via Flickr:
Brown Bear (Ursus arctos) cub hangs on for a ride on its mother’s back. This Brown Bear Mom is a veteran at raising cubs. According to the Guides, this is her 3rd or 4th litter. We first saw her in 2010 when she grazed around the meadow with two tiny cubs in tow. Fast-forward 3 years later, the two “cubs” tip the scale at roughly 400 lbs each, and are on their own; Mom now has 2 new cubs who graze on the meadow with her and attempt to ride on her back every chance they get. Lake Clark National Park, Alaska.

E lui ti dice che sei bella e tutt'a un tratto lo sei. Ma ho una notizia da darvi:
è un gran casino, in realtà, un gigantesco incubo che vi esploderà in mano.
Non avete idea del pasticcio in cui vi siete ficcate. L'amore non è un gioco.
Le persone ci si tagliano le orecchie. Ci si buttano dalla Torre Eiffel, oppure vendono tutto quello che hanno per trasferirsi tipo in Alaska e vivere con gli orsi grizzly, e poi finiscono sbranate e nessuno le sente urlare aiuto.
Ecco com'è: innamorarsi è più o meno come essere divorati da un grizzly.
E credetemi io lo so.
