Often the first pictures of the trip at Sailcone’s Grizzly Bear Lodge are of the guests in their big red suits. Although they don’t make much of a fashion statement they are very warm and most guests are glad that they have them, especially on those chilly mornings.
It is September 1st and these grizzly bears are looking like they need a good meal. And they do because not many salmon have arrived in the river. A late arrival of salmon to Knight Inlet’s Glendale River means that the bears have less time to fatten for hibernation. By early October the grizzlies were in better shape but it will still be an interesting winter for some of the younger bears and only next spring will we may see the result of a poorer salmon run.
