Two weeks ago, on May 15,

Sean & I took the girls to Haines

with our new friend Jes!

Along the way we were greeted by this magnificent

creature along the side of the highway...

He took the time out of his busy day to

Pose for a few photos!!!

I hope you enjoy them...We sure did!!

Knowing that our Yukon Grizzlies are relatively small

with Large males weighing in at about 350 lbs,

we gathered that this fella was a coastal Salmon fed Bear

because he was at least DOUBLE what we'd ever see here!

Anyways...he was awesome

and we were all thrilled for this chance encounter!

By the way, consider this...

he has just come out of his winter den!

Can you even begin to imagine

what this bear will look like after a few solid months of

fattening up on yummy fish?

I sure can't!!!
