The grizzly viewing stands used by Grizzly Bear Lodge after August 24th has a backside or other side (as “back side” might infer that the viewing is not a good) which is the natural Glendale River. In this case a first year cub was following it’s mother and pass along the edge of the river beneath the stand. It was quite curious and keeps a close eye on the “humans” in the stand directly above. The mother on the other hand ignored the “viewers” in the stand.
This black bear was viewed on one of the evening tours that happen on your arrival day. A local wildlife boat trip is taken to familiarize guest with boats and guides as well as finding black bear, bald eagles, harbour seals etc. This bear is looking for it’s evening meal located under rocks. This inter-tidal zone “food” is high in protein and is made up of crab, clams, barnacles, amphipods and other tiny invertebrates. The “beach food” is important because plant food is relatively scarce during spring and bears will continue to loose weight until well into June. Yes it is a large rock and the bear did turn it over with a little effort.
