Grizzly bear spring cub

Grizzly moher & cubThe end of May and this mother grizzly and cub has found it’s way to the shore on Knight Inlet. Born in January or February makes this cub four to five months old and a new member of the “Grizzly Bears of Knight Inlet Family”.  The shore of the inlet has few large male grizzlies this time of the year as they are waiting the arrival of the salmon in August and tend to be nearer the river mouths of the Inlet. This photo was taken several miles from the mouth of the Glendale River our ultimate destination for the day’s grizzly bear tour. But you never pass up a photo opportunity especially one involving a cub.
