Traffic jam at Trapper Rick’s

Grizzly blocking road

On your extra day in camp we cross Knight Inlet pass through Thompson Sound to the Kakweikan River and spend a day with Trapper Rick.  This river located on the BC mainland is accessible only by boat. From the dock we travel by truck to Rick’s cabin and occasionally find Grizzly Bears on the road. We followed this bear down the road for five or six minutes until it reached its destination and turned into the forest. The roads are a main highway for the bears as travel is easier then forest trails and being that Rick’s truck is the only one using the road there is no traffic congestion.
