I am currently reading my way through a long list of science fiction and fantasy titles. (http://www.npr.org/2011/08/07/138938145/science-fiction-and-fantasy-finalists if you are interested in the list).
Saturday was a magical day--I traveled to Prince Rupert, British Columbia and went on a boat tour specifically to see Grizzly Bears. The first 3 bears were skittish and soon ran away, but then we encountered three bears that were calm and allowed us to enjoy their company for a prolonged period.
Amazing numbers of Bald Eagles as well.
