I felt like I’d wandered into the middle of Jurassic Park, and I tried not to look like protein.

From Chapter 2 of Alaska Traveler:

There were spectacular views of the Barren Islands, Cape Douglas, Afognak, Shuyak and Kodiak en route. We landed in a delightful little bay on the southern shore of the Aleutian Peninsula protected by a miniature archipelago and steep mountains still layered with ash from the explosion of Mount Katmai in 1912. Some of those drifts of ash had bear tracks running through them. A double waterfall cascaded down one mountain, and fog played tag with the sun. We ate our lunch on board a sixty-five foot yacht, piled into a skiff and headed for shore. And bears. Grizzly bears, the undisputed mammoth of the ursine world. Lots of them.
