As mentioned in an earlier posting grizzly bears are very playful—cubs treat their moms like a jungle gym. These twins did not want to leave their mother alone and this causes a problem. She had caught enough salmon and the cubs were content and wanted to play however she needs to continue fishing, as she requires many more salmon to fatten for hibernation. In this area with the large number of bears mothers cannot sent the cubs off on their own to rest or play they need to be constantly is her “protection area” for safety. So it becomes a fine balance between play for the cubs and food for mom.
Glassy Calm Whale Watching in Blackfish Sound
On the coast the weather can at times be unpredictable. That being said in the summer and fall we are often very lucky with our weather and often do not get a lot of rain until October. Our waters are protected from the open ocean, so although it can get a bit choppy at times we do not receive the big swells that trigger seasickness. This is a beautiful evening in October (after the end of the season) watching a number of resident Orca move through Blackfish Sound, into Johnstone Strait.Visit our Blog
