|We took a float plane to the park.|
|Which is the only way to reach it.|
When we arrived, we had to go to the visitors center for an orientation on bear safety. The lodges in the National Parks are all sort of log cabin style.
|The Ranger was giving her speech when...|
A bear walked right through the middle of camp past our window! This is a photo I took of the bear from inside the visitor center.
|The mamma bear and cub walking along the river.|
The bears were everywhere, springing out of rushes and trees. The rangers would close the bridge when the bears came by and people would have to wait on the secured platforms until the bear went away.
While we were watching the bears, something about them seemed familiar to me. I realized I had a little bear waiting for me at home.
|My little house bear.|
|Grizzly shaking off.|
|Gypsy shaking off.|
The higher falls were where the bigger bears hung out. Better salmon catching there.
|Look how close this guy is to the crowds of people on the opposite side of the bridge.|
|He'd just finished chasing a bunch of fisherman out of the water and now he was going to have a sit down.|
|The bears rub against the trees to get their winter coat off.|
|This guy was surprised on the trail and the ranger threw a rock at him to get him to turn around and go back to the beach.|
|Our float plane home.|
|Louise and I about to leave.|
