It's not like Alaska isn't wilderness - it mostly is. But most Alaskans don't live in the wild. They live on the edge of the wild in towns with schools and cable TV and stores and dentists and roller rinks sometimes. It's just like anyplace else, only with mountains and moose.

Lets go for a walk
Bishops Beach is a great place for a walk during low tide. Small rivers flowing from tide pools make tall rubber boots a necessity, and the real cool thing is that all the rocks are covered in barnacles, so the walking is easy with no slippery rocks. Where we walk during the low tide is under roughly 15 to 20 feet of water during the high tide, so there is always plenty of cool stuff to see. The seagulls and eagles are hanging around at low tide looking for a meal.
This little hermit crab kept getting tipped over by the waves as he was trying to get back to the water. I think he was trying to hide out from the seagulls. I gave him a little help back to the water.
How would you like to be a hermit crab stuck in the middle of this bunch!
And I have absolutely no idea what this is .. and I'm not going to touch it!
