If you choose to stay the extra night at our lodge the extra day is spent at a “wild” river on a wilderness tour. We cross Knight Inlet pass through Thompson Sound to the Kakweikan River and spend a day with Trapper Rick. The scenery on BC’s mainland in breathtaking and the wildlife viewing provides a reasonable chance of grizzly bear sightings. Bears are viewed below the falls at Rick’s cabin or on the road to the cabin. In this case it was on the road and we wait until the bear decides to let us pass. Having guided for the past twelve summer I can say that seeing a grizzly bear at Rick’s is a different sensation than see one from a viewing stand on Knight Inlet’s Glendale River.
Viewing Platform 5 of 5
These first year grizzly siblings were in the same area as yesterday’s posting just on the edge of the bank beneath the viewing platform but with a much better camera. Most guests coming to the lodge have a camera capable of taking the photo in toady’s posting if not they will exchange emails with other guests. They may be like I am and only use a photo to jog a memory so nearness is not all that important. But the opportunity for that “bucket list” photo does happen at the viewing platform.
