These first year black bear cubs are not able to scrape the barnacles and muscles off the rocks like their mother so they are waiting for a chance to move off the beach to nurse. But then again this photo was from June 18th which makes them two and a half months younger than the grizzly cubs of yesterdays post and at this age that is a long time.
Yes, salmon by the thousands wait in the holding pool in the entrance to the spawning channel of BC’s Glendale River. Grizzly Bear Lodge’s bear tours have rights to a viewing stand overlooking this pool. The salmon are the attraction for the grizzlies that are trying to fatten for the winter denning. The salmon arrive in mid August and we are permitted to use the stands after August 24th. It is a short van ride from the river estuary and provides guests with many photo opportunities.Visit our Blog
