    Ironically, Redoubt Bay Lodge where I used to work which is only 20 miles from the volcano has missed the ash so far, however, I think there may be some flooding there. Hopefully all the bears I know well denned on the north fork well away, or at least got up and moved during the earthquake phase. Life surviving in Alaska is tough for bears which is one reason they don’t need to be “managed” up there. The environment does a pretty good job of eliminating bears without the help of humans.

  2. I read your book, Linda. I really enjoyed it.

    It’s funny that I had totally forgotten the name of the lodge.

    Linda – I enjoyed your book so much and felt like I was there with you at Redoubt Bay Lodge. What a great opportunity you had to enjoy those bears and that wonderful country.

    Here’s a link to the page that has info on the latest activity, they post new photos everyday and there are some webcam links on a side bar to see what’s happening. Since last night, the one called “HUT” is about 7 miles from the crater on another mountain but it’s covered with ask right now and you can’t see anything from Cook Inlet (Chevron’s camera) is all smoked in. But the photos from last night are great. Those were submitted by a resident in or near Homer.

    Linda Hunter – I am sorry- I should have added this comment about your book. Our high school librarian ordered three copies of it and she told me when I borrowed it that they are being checked out on a regular basis. There is still hope for those teenagers!

Quote

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."

~ Edward Abbey
