Photo: Bear Poses for Tourists

A bear for the tourists via Flickr

Back in July 2005, the State installed this stuffed bear in the atrium outside of my library. At the time it seemed tacky to me. But it is a tourist magnet. It seems like hundreds if not thousands of tourists have their pictures taken in front of the bear. Hopefully their pictures come out better than mine.

If you’ve taken a picture of this bear, I’d like to see it.

I’ve gotten used to the bear in the half decade he’s stood guard outside the library. I’m also grateful that he is native to our area. One of the first things that greets you at the Juneau airport is a stuffed polar bear, whose range is about a 1,000 miles northward.
