The morning sunrise turned into a beautiful day as we returned to the Lodge in time to watch fuel being pumped into our tanks. Diesel, gasoline and propane are delivered on a regular schedule. All groceries come in by plane or when staff returns from time off in town. There is no wasted room on the plane as it is the only way to get the fresh produce necessary for the camps famous meals and baking.
The grizzly bear tours from Grizzly Bear Lodge prior to August 25th are to the area of Knight Inlet’s Glendale Cove. After and hour and fifteen minute boat ride we transfer to a 5.5 meter (yard) skiff and explore the river estuary and travel up the river as the tide rises. On this day we came around a bend in the river to find three grizzly cubs crossing the river with no mother in sight. You need to know that while in the river your guide in normally pulling the skiff through the water so our approach is very quite and the mother grizzly was not aware of our presence. Tomorrow’s post reveals the mother’s arrival.
