Alaska Dan sent this photo taken two weeks ago in from Katmai National Park in AK of brown bears having a good time fishing and swimming in the Park. I thought grizzlies, but I guess it all depends on geographic location of the bear as to whether you call them brown or grizzly...because they are the same species. If the bears have access to coastal waters for salmon, etc., they are brownies! And now we know! He says "count how many"...I found it easier to count the gulls!

How many brownies are having a good time fishing? I'll say 6.
Whatever it is, it's a lot. I hope he was standing far enough way when he took that picture. And not munching on a sashimi sampler.

Getting a bit of smoke here from the Oregon fires! After last year's wildfire season (and we haven't reached that season here yet), any hint of smoke in the air puts one on alert!

Whoop, whoop, and we're pretty sure that Chip likes his bike erg! A message arrived stating that a big meter upload was occurring - must be fond of making understatements! Congratulations, Chip, on cruising through the first million meters of this erging season! We wish you many, MANY more milestones, celebrations and sneak attacks! :D

I'm having a blast riding my Concept2 BikeErg on the ZWIFT platform. For those who may be interested, here is a link with instructions on connecting the C2 Rowing Ergometer to the ZWIFT app: https://zwiftinsider.com/rowing-on-zwift/. I'm not sure how rowing compares to riding in the world of ZWIFT regarding power & speed, but at a minimum it seems it could be a fun way to add some variety.

I'm fairly tuned in to bird sounds...and today I for sure heard the "hey, I found something" call. I looked up to see my golf snacks flying away with a magpie who was calling his friends to gather around, and I was not willing to give 'em up without a fight. ...a different way to chase a birdie on the golf course! But, I retrieved the snacks! I thought only chipmunks stole things out of yer cart! Ha!
