Date on photo 9/3/2015 11:20 AM View one is looking to the right toward the entrance to the spawning channel and the weir which maintains the water level. I count seven grizzlies. But then I know that there is one close to the river bank where the rocks and white water are just below the grizzly standing at the weir. Some of these are “binocular bears” but the ones in tomorrow’s post are not….
Late fall and another mother grizzly this time with a second year cub. The cub still wanting to share mother’s catch even though it is time for it to be doing it’s own fishing. It will not likely get another year of lessons on how to survive. These bears were not blonde in the spring but were definitely much lighter in colour. The change, we have noticed, seems to occur when their diet changes from grass, roots and berries to salmon.
