Thanks chul3l3ies1126, Laurelin, Snuggles, ladyshadowhollyjc, Dieselsmama, tuffycuddles and Hallie. You guys are so flattering .
They do have very good call back. In fact there was a small family came down there and they went and sniffed, and I told them to "leave it" and they did. I try to pick places no one goes, but in Alaska that's very hard, it's not Montana.
I use a Nikon D70 that I picked up cheap off of Craigslist. Best thing I have ever bought. I don't know how to use the settings, so I just point and shoot at this time. I'm hoping to get a book or something since there aren't any classes on it out here. Thanks you guys for being so kind and encouraging. This is a great forum.
