Due to last year's "record" snowfall, it was still pretty much white, all the way down to the beach until June, 2012.
That seemed to cause most Black Bears to stay denned-up longer, and there were a lot of winter-killed Sitka deer.
This year sure was milder, at least around Anchorage. But, PWS may have had completely different conditions?
Any seasoned PWS travelers, that can offer a relative comparison of Spring snow cover, 2012 -vs- 2013?
