It was a small island about two hectares in size. We could not see any grass but there was lots of moss and lichens. The deer came down a steep rock face to eat the seaweed on the shore. Over the summer I saw several different deer on this little island and was never able to determine the attraction as they had to swim from a larger island that was over a mile long that had lots opportunity for grazing.
Every tour is different and this is why after years of doing this the guides still enjoy a day on the water or with the bears. All the guides have been with the lodge for at least ten years each. The difference is that you are never sure what you will see. In this case the first photo is on the road close to the viewing stands the second on the river bank in the same area. The bears have accepted us as part of their surroundings and at times act more like pet dogs than grizzlies. But not as near as friendly. Note the grizzly is in the pig family not canine.
