This summer there were some warm days on Knight Inlet’s Glendale River. This photo was taken on the first of September from the viewing stands.  After August 24th Grizzly Bear Lodge’s grizzly watching tours are permitted to use the viewing stands on the Glendale River, this is an hour and fifteen-minute boat ride from the lodge. This grizzly bear was on the natural riverside of the stands just enjoying the cooler river water.  It spent about ten minutes just sitting and letting the cool water flow past before it resumed fishing for the “pink” salmon.
