A day trip from the lodge means we travel up Knight Inlet to the Glendale River. In the fall the viewing time in the stands for Grizzly Bear Lodge is from 10:00 am to 12:00 am. The stands being a 20-minute van ride up a logging road, which parallels the river. The grizzly bears have accepted our presence and tend to ignore the stands and will pass close and even under the stands. The key is no flashes on cameras, no perfumes or other scents on the watchers, definitely no food, talking in quite voices and no sudden moves. Although the bears ignore if we overstep the guidelines they will turn in our direction and stare to let us know “they know”.
Great photo of a humpback whale into its dive but would not work for identification. The whale watching companies in the viewing area used by Grizzly Bear Lodge are constantly trying to determine which whales are in the area. Whale identification requires a clear photo of the underside of the tail to view the patterns of white and black as well as all the nicks and scars.
