I was heading down the hillside in Anchorage about noon today and had a large black bear cross the road in front of me. He disappeared into the brush before I could get a picture of him but I did stop and take some pics of the tracks he left in the snow. I'm sure he was just out looking for a snack before going back to den for another month or two. Has anyone else been seeing any bear sign this time of year. Sorry the bear tracks don't show up well in the new snow, it looks like it was the second time today he had crossed the road at this point as there was two sets of tracks, both the same size. He looked like a fairly large bear with a front pad that was 5" across.
