Once the guides have move your luggage to the lodge and rooms are assigned it is “snack” time. The means fresh dungeness crab or prawns depending on the season, a selection of cheeses, crackers (biscuits), and drinks (tea, coffee, pop / soda, maybe a beer).

A beautiful fall morning on the Glendale River located on Knight Inlet, which is part of British Columbia’s Great Bear Rainforest. We had left Grizzly Bear Lodge at 7:30 for the hour and half boat ride up the inlet to the river. After taking Angus’s guest to shore for the SUV ride up to the viewing stands my guests climbed into the flat bottom river skiff for an estuary tour. If you check the Jan 1st posting “Google Map of Spawning Channel” it shows the yellow dot of the float and we went from there into the river and up past the tree line. At times pulling the boat over the sand bars and up the shallow river but as the tide came in we were about half a mile into the tree’s when we saw this mother and cubs coming down river. We had moved to the riverbank and I was standing in hip deep water holding the boat…… more tomorrow
