“Polar bears in my neighborhood!”
I took these pictures this morning less than two miles from my house! (I should probably mention that we were at the zoo.) It’s a myth that polar bears roam all over Alaska. They generally stick to the northern coastal regions and never venture as far south as Anchorage.
We were at the zoo Saturday so my son could compete in a fun run for kids. It snowed hard the entire time we were there. I can’t believe it’s May and winter’s still hanging on.
If you ever get the chance to visit our state, make sure you get to the zoo. It’s not on the scale of the Hamburg or San Diego Zoo, but it gives the visitor a great glimpse of our native species.
