Meet Speedy the griz

She is about 300 maybe 350 lbs has big feet, not a large bearSpeedy4

She is pretty complacientSpeedy5

Sports jewlery used to wear a tracking collar Speedy

Thinks she is the sexy Queen of the Chilkoot river which is only 1.5 miles long. She will clear out every fisherman or other bear on it but doesn’t seem to mind anyone with out a fishing pole or fishing gearSpeedy2

But this is her true self……at least to me…not to anyone else, lol. She has walked through my camp everyday. Has seen me with my dogs talking to others with their dogs. she has been 30 ft or closer to many people.  Well mannered knows the rules. Unlike her kicked off trouble maker twins who were seen ripping apart a bunch of life jackets this morning. Or the nervous and very dangerous mom with new this year cub.Speedy3

Haines, Alaska

Beautiful place. Winters not to bad. I could easily live here. Anyone want to be my patron? LOL.  Food and fuel is pricey! But it is a bit remote and most things come in by ferry than by road. Good coffee. Behiind these mountians are bigger mountians and larger glaciers. Be a good small plane vlight to view.
