Trip to McNeil River to camp with and view the grizzly bears

Up close and personal -- the bears came right up beside our viewing space. This bear is about 5 feet from our chairs.

A view of Mt. Illiamna (volcano) from our bear viewing space. There is an eagle flying in the sky, lots of seagulls, and bears in the river.

Junior Iditarod at Willow, Alaska with NFL great Larry Csonka. Larry has a TV show on Versus called NAPA's North to Alaska. The episode that he filmed at the Jr. Iditarod will air on June 5, 2011. He will also have an episode about the World
