    Looked like these only from the side. No face view. It had a broad gait. Covered that two lane in about 8 steps.

    Each time I recount the event.
    At the end of the day it happened sleep was difficult to come by.
    I was never skeptical, I never thought I would see one let alone two people see it and logically come to the same conclusion.
    Sure wished I would have put up a camera.

    The balance of the trip.
    Been busy on another trip to NC.
    Our semi final destination was Glacier National Park. We took about a week to get there with stops along the way including Mount Robsin, Banff and Jasper, Canadian Parks.
    In Glacier we did some hikes and a did a side trip to Polebridge, MT.
    The weather was perfect the entire first week of September and unlike tha last trip to Glacier two years ago there were no fires and no smoke.
    10 days later we were back in east TN for three weeks prior to packing up for a week in the NC Mountains.

    Before going to NC my Bro-in-Law stopped in while they were headed from northern MI back to FL.
    We went to Tims Ford State Park near Winchester, TN for four days.
    Beat down from the last of the Summer heat we came home to recoup.

    20K people attend Wooly Worm. Worm races up a string, winner gets $1000.
    Bring your own or buy one from the Worm Lady, warmed up and ready to climb.
    Music, food, arts and crafts.

    Alaska is an amazing State with some interesting folks. Yukon and NW BC are both incredibly wild spaces.
    I would like to go back and spend more time, see more places.
    I would also like to spend more time and $$ going up or down the coast on the AK Ferry System. Ketchikan, Juneau, Valdez again and get to the Kenai without the fires.
    Glacier is nice, our 5th time there but its so damn discovered and crowded now unless you go back country.
