Early Grizzly Bear

grizzly bears beach forage

It is Knight Inlet’s Glendale Cove and it is early June. All the lodge’s grizzly bear viewing prior to August 25th (when we are permitted to use the viewing stands on the river) occurs along the shore. On this morning the grizzly viewed is at the edge of the water on a very low tide. As the tide rises the bears work their way up the beach to the sedge grass and then berry patches as the beach disappears. This makes for great viewing of the bears in their natural habitat and doing what bears do – forage.
