Cow Bay is a waterfront community in Prince Rupert. It was named as such when a herd of dairy cows landed here by ship in 1906.

This gives a whole new meaning to "public restroom". I saw this structure while walking towards downtown Skagway, Alaska. If you click on the second photo, you can see a little sign asking for donations to clean up Skagway. I did not check the content of the can, but it is not likely for people to leave donations out in the open.
I have always been fascinated by suspension bridges. The Yukon Suspension Bridge is the 2nd one I have walked on. The first was the Capilano Suspension Bridge located in Vancouver, British Columbia.
From recollection, the Capilano was much more exciting because a strong wind or someone walking across with a heavy step will cause the bridge to sway slightly side-to-side. Click here for a short video of the bridge. If you look closely, you can see it sway.
Outside of a zoo, I have only seen a bear twice. Once by a freeway, yes freeway, in Tahoe and the other at Mendenhall Glacier during my recent Alaskan trip. We were warned verbally and with signs that there were bears in the area due to the salmons spawning in the nearby streams.
Since it was September 11th yesterday, my friends and I visited two local memorials dedicated to the passengers & crew who died on United Flight 93. A number of the victims were residents of the San Francisco Bay Area.
