Down River from Viewing Platform 1 of 2

grizzly safetyThe viewing platform used by Grizzly Bear Lodge on the Glendale River has the natural river on one side and end and the holding pool to the salmon spawning channel on the other side. This photo shows the river in the background and the entrance to the holding pool. This is also the easiest access for the grizzlies as they walk up river. In this case the juvenile grizzly on the log had just moved quickly from the gravel bar to the log and then into the bush. A few minutes later after the larger adult male had moved into the pool it came back out to see if it was safe to come and fish. It was and it did.
