We headed over to Hallo Bay in Katmai National Park last Friday and spent the day with the bears under the very capable guidance of Roland's wife, Jo Murphy. We were able to observe all sorts of bear behavior rather close up. It was a sunny day with just enough wind to keep the bugs away. A highly recommended trip!

We hiked out to Pasagshak Point on the old road on Friday, June 5. The ranchers had done quite a bit of clearing along the road; this is unfortunate as it will increase the number of people driving, rather than hiking, out to the point. The devastation caused by the cattle is unbelievable - Narrow Cape and Pasagshak are being destroyed by overgrazing.

Our friend, Christie, arrived yesterday from Oregon. She is the owner of Ocean Haven Bed and Make Your Own Damn Breakfast in Yachats, Oregon. We met Christie at Laguna San Ignacio several years ago while petting baby grey whales. Click on the title to see the Ocean Haven website.
Oh boy! Chocolate!
