Mother with triplets

Mother grizzly with cubs

If you look closely you will see the third cub following mother along the shore of the Glendale River estuary. In the spring until August 25th we cruise along the shore of the Glendale estuary as well as up the river as the tide rises in search of grizzlies. It is always interesting to watch the mother walk into the water and swim for a short distance because the cubs will climb over almost anything on shore to avoid going into the water. They are good swimmers at this age but have not learned to enjoy the water however later in the season when they are chasing salmon in the river they seem more at home.
