The Lynx and the Hare

Chugach National Forest employees working at the USFS compound at Crown Point, off Kenai Lake, glimpsed some wonderful creatures Tuesday afternoon. Irene Lindquist took this photography of a Lynx. After watching him for about 10 minutes from their office, she and Alex followed his tracks behind the building to see where he had gone. Not long after the lynx ran off into the woods, a Snowshoe hare came up from the lake and sat in the open for 15 minutes. (See its photo below) Irene hopes he hasn’t become kitty food-he was really cute!

    Great Photos!

  2. A very nice photo of the Lynx. The Wolverine photos were great too, from some time ago. To see these animals is a rare opportunity. Consider yourself gifted by nature to have a look at them. Here in the lower 48 there are so many people and other disturbances it is very rare to see a Lynx or even a Bobcat. Alaska is about the outdoors and while you are there, make and enjoy full use of it. I did in 1971 & 1972 and then again for a few weeks in 2007 & 2008. Seward is a gorgeous town. Take good care of it. Be the good Steward to Seward!
