# 3070A-TH-H1 Beyond Trails

Lake Johnson
Alaska Trail

The Johnson State Recreational Area is a popular destination for camping, wildlife viewing, scenic views, fishing and swimming.  It is also the home for black and brown bear, lynx, moose, squirrels, hares and other creatures.  

We found several bedding areas where bear had made a temporary home and sleeping quarters.  Moose were walking along the marsh.  

Once again, my friend Dave snagged me by the arm to rush me away from possible bear encounters.  I stopped quickly to turn and take the photograph here of the trail layered with tree roots that I had admired on the hike to the lake.  

I only "slightly" touched up this photograph (although I am tempted to play with it soon!).  It came in 3rd place for a photography contest.
