Thanks to Julie for giving us this three part picture of a bald eagle taking flight. They truly are a beautiful bird and we are lucky to have such a healthy population in our area. Guides often joke “we only point out the first twenty”
About 35 meters (yards) from the viewing platform we use after August 24th a tree has fallen across a small channel in the river. This tree has become a pathway for the grizzly bears that do not want to get their feet wet. That means bear cubs because they tend to avoid the water if they can. They use the log to watch their mother as she fishes in the river below and if she is too slow in catching a salmon it is a good place to rest.
