This photo is either a mother Grizzly with triplets or the middle bear (cub) has a very long and twisted body. Triplets are not uncommon in Grizzly Bear Lodge’s viewing area but they are allot more work for the mother grizzly at this time of the year. That extra mouth to feed and one more cub to keep track of in an area with many other bears means less time to fish. On this day there were other mothers and cubs in the fishing pool and it took time for this family to join the group and feel comfortable enough to start fishing.
This is the Grizzly Bear viewing platform that we use from August 25 until the end of the season. The maximum number of guests we are allowed to have in the platform is 5 and during our time it will only be guests from our lodge. People have plenty of space to get some great views and photos of the bears as they look for salmon. The viewing in this area is well managed, limiting the number of people and the times that we can view. This allows guests to have great experiences viewing the bears, but also creates low stress levels for the bears as they go about their business.
