This picture was taken from the viewing stands on Knight Inlet’s Glendale River.  We are able to use the stands, which are located at the mouth of the man made spawning channel after the 24th of August.  The stand we use is at the end of a finger of land that has the natural river on one side and the holding pool for the spawning area on the other side.  This photo taken between the shoulders of two guests shows a grizzly bear walking along the edge of the holding pool toward the stand. The vehicle we use is up the bank about five meters (fifteen feet) from the bear, which is about ten meters from the stand.
