A day trip from the lodge means we travel up Knight Inlet to the Glendale River. In the fall the viewing time in the stands for Grizzly Bear Lodge is from 10:00 am to 12:00 am. The stands being a 20-minute van ride up a logging road, which parallels the river. The grizzly bears have accepted our presence and tend to ignore the stands and will pass close and even under the stands. The key is no flashes on cameras, no perfumes or other scents on the watchers, definitely no food, talking in quite voices and no sudden moves. Although the bears ignore if we overstep the guidelines they will turn in our direction and stare to let us know “they know”.
The rivers along the BC coast, in the area of Knight Inlet are subject to extreme water level changes, which may wash out a bridge. This was not the case with Rick’s river rather it was an engineer who had a section of a bridge removed. After the fact no other official agrees with the decision but it takes time to have an error corrected. Until then we use a boat. Photos byBruce & Carole Cripps 10-11Visit our Blog
