2019-08-19 JBER Black Bear
I saw my first Alaskan bear today. Now I have only been in Alaska three times and only one of those times we went into the back country. However I have traveled many mile on the highway. It kind of fitting that my first bear sighting was in a populated area. We were on our way to go shopping on the Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson when this little bear popped out of the woods and ran across the road in front of us.
