By the end of the day, I was a nervous wreck from dodging bears and trying to fish at the same time. We had no close calls, but being around so many huge bears in the wild just got to me.
On the way home, I stopped at an Anchorage department store for souvenirs. I was looking into a glass-topped counter and walking slowly backward when I bumped into something. Turning to look, I screamed out loud.
