 Bear motivated exercise


Part I: polar bear motivated exercise

This is how we get incentive to jog in the Arctic - in Kaktovik, Alaska.


The fellow being chased is a friend of a relative of a friend of ours who was in the Aleutians with us.  Rose was then an agent for Reeves Aleutian Airways and spouse of a late, fellow Aleutians East teacher; they have two wonderful adult children.

Part II: black bear motivated exercise

Reportedly during the winter of 2006, a family that lives in the hillside area of Anchorage built this playground in their yard for their 3 and 4 year-old boys. The next morning, mom woke up to this scene: young black bears enjoying their efforts.
