Me at the terminus of the glacier.
it's melting! AH!
We spent Sunday night at Coal Lakes about 20 miles from Delta Junction. In the morning we were awoken by heaving breathing and gravel moving. A large mammal was inspecting our tent and romping around. We are pretty sure it was a bear by the sound of the movement and breathing, though we couldn't find any tracks or animal signs. I have never been more scared in my life. We we thought it was gone we crawled out of the tent and made as much noise as possible and packed up camp. We had breakfast by Donnely Dome and then made our way back to Fairbanks.
