7.2 Quake in Alaska

I was surprised this morning when I turned on my computer and actually saw mention of this earthquake from last night. The media typically forgets or ignores news coming out of Alaska or Hawaii, but guess because a 7.2 quake is pretty strong, they mentioned it. Fortunately, no tsunami followed. The quake occurred in the Aleutian Islands which is about 1200 miles from Anchorage and it was 26 miles deep.
We always enjoy the drive to Alaska, all 2200 miles of it...and I sure miss an Alaska summer. Which brought me to looking at pictures from our last trip, like the one of the black bear below.
