downtown Juneau, bears seen
Sunny again but rain is on the way. We are getting 3 cruise ships every day. Lots of float planes, lots of tour buses and lots of people walking in downtown Juneau. Such a change from 2 weeks ago. The last of the snow in the yard is melting. There is still a big patch of snow in the backyard: 20 feet long and 2 feet high. The grass is turning green fast.
Bears: I am told that a momma bear and two cubs are out and about. They are on the mountain behind my apartment. Another momma bear and cubs are by Auke Bay. One teacher was saying that she saw a big bear up a tree sleeping.
