.. went back to fishing and ignored us completely. It never ceases to amaze me how the grizzlies of the Glendale River have accepted our presence and as long as we remain stationary we become part of the background and are not a threat. That does not mean that the pepper spray was not ready to be used. I talked to the guests and the said that they did not feel threatened and that the bear seem calm and deliberate in it’s actions.
Prior to August 25th grizzly bears tours are in the Glendale River and its estuary. We use a flat bottom skiff to move up river with the incoming tide. Frequently the first sighting of grizzly bears is from a distance, which requires a telephoto lens for good pictures. Today’s posting is an example of that first sighting of four grizzlies which became close-up photos once the tide rose a little more. The first view of a grizzly is the most exciting and from talking with guests over the years it is often more memorable than the closer encounters. For the closer encounter just scroll through the previous postings.
