How Did I Miss the Bear?

This evening we were told that a black bear walked through our campsite around 8:30am. I don’t know how Zaph and I missed it as we were getting ready to go for our walk. Oh well maybe it was better that Zaph and the black bear didn’t meet. The Exit Glacier is approximately 10 miles outside of Seward, so this was our first stop of the day. As it is in a National Park, dogs are not allowed on the trails so poor Zaph had to wait in the truck while we hiked up to the Glacier. A drive around town was the next item on the clipboard of fun. My "spotting eye" was working well and I found a juvenile bald eagle sitting on a dead tree. We also saw some people catching some nice big salmons from the shore. Zaph was happy when we went for a long walk along the waterfront and then back along the main street.
