Windfall Fisherman

This statue is on Main Street, in front of the Federal Courthouse, and across from the Capitol Building, where the state legislature meets.

Tourists often have their pictures taken in front of it, children climbing up and occasionally even sitting on it. I have a picture of Maya standing by the bear when she and Julie came to visit seven years ago. It is a delightful bear, calm and alert, with a fish between its paws.

The second view I took one winter. Since real bears hibernate, we don't ever get to see them looking like this. It's one of my favorite Juneau pictures, showing a standard landscape feature in a non-standard photo shot.

In A Nutshell follows.
