Its pretty simple, Whittier is still in winter times. Just came back from a trip and the girls said it best, it felt like we were going out for deer season. Rained Friday then on Saturday is snowed and snowed hard. White out conditions and not a single sign of black bear what so ever. Only life seen was a pourcupine and the shrimp that was caught. Still fun to be out with friends but no sign of bear yet and probably not for a while since PWS in still under couple feet of snow still.
