Hi Everyone!  Welcome back!! 
Time for another Sketch here at the S: CY Blog-  it must be Friday! 
Sketch #18-11 provides space for 2 smaller square photos, and a larger horizontal photo, in addition to some side-interest which could be  scalloped or other style of edging. 
Let's have a peek at the latest S: CY Sketch!

Maggi's journaling reads:  

Hyder, Alaska sits at the head of the Portland Canal and although it is in Alaska, it identifies more with Canada as Stewart, BC (pop. 700) is just across the border.  Hyder has no connection to the USA, you can only get to Hyder by driving through Canada, by air or sea. It is notable for being the only place in Alaska not to use the statewide 907 area code, instead using the area code of 250 allocated for British Columbia. Tourists will also find that Hyder uses Pacific Time Zone, the common currency is Canadian (with the exception of the US Post Office, which only accepts American currency), they observe Canadian holidays, send their children to Canadian schools, and when there is trouble, the famed Canadian Mounties step in.  (From Wikipedia)

We traveled to Hyder for one reason and that was for bear viewing at the US Forest Service Fish Creek Wildlife Viewing Area.  We watched a brown bear and her spring cub fish for salmon in the creek.  She didn’t seem to be at all disturbed by the people on the viewing platform but she did keep a watchful eye out for other bears, particularly males, as they will kill cubs so that the females will mate with them.
There’s not much in Hyder, the streets are gravel, many of the buildings are rather derelict in appearance and many are closed.

That's all for this week folks... so glad you popped over!  Thanks to Heather, Maggi, Jennifer and Ann for their interpretations of my Sketch this week.
