All grizzly bear trips from the lodge prior to August 25th view bears along the shore of Knight Inlet and in the Glendale River estuary. Mother grizzlies start to bring their cubs to these areas in late May and stay for the salmon that arrive in late August. Grizzly cubs are naturally playful and if there is more than one the mother gets some rest as they play together but in this case it is all about mom. If there is not much shore remaining then lets play in the water. Can you think of a better way to cool off in August? Thanks again to Marc & Solange from France for the photo.
Everyone benefits when grizzly bears come to the beach at low tide. This bear is having a meal of mussels it scrapes off the logs. Any bits and pieces the bear leaves provide an easy meal for the crows, which are always close. Turning over rocks also uncovers many sand fleas and lice that the bears may overlook but not the crows.
