The famous black bear sow, named Nickie by many because of a nick in her left ear, wanders out of the brush and onto the road as she looks both ways before crossing Thursday near the Mendenhall Glacier. The silver salmon have been swimming up Steep creek but in small numbers so far. Bears in the area have been seen eating lots of ground cones and roots with an occasional salmon.
