Grazing Grizzly Bears

Grizzly with triplets

Grizzly bear viewing prior to August 25th is along the shore and in the estuary of the Glendale River. This is the area the mothers first bring their cubs in the spring. There is an abundance of high protein sedge grass as well as turning over beach rocks for the crawling protein. This photo is from early July so these cubs are five of six months old. At this time of the year we are in a 5.5 meter (yard) skiff, which allows us into the shallow water along the shore and in the river. This photo was taken with a Pentax Optio Wpi 6MP and 3X Optical Zoom that is a good quality point and shoot but most guest have better cameras so imagine the pictures they have.
