waldo #3

Waldo is curious about this outsider taking a picture of him. If these bears charged a dollar for every picture snapped of them, he would be a very rich bear now. I am looking through my camera not realizing how close he is getting. This is one of my favorite pictures because it shows you how close we really get!

View from  the campground

This picture was taken close to midnight. It never got dark while we were there, but there was about 3 hours of dusk. This is the view from our campground looking towards McNeil River. An incredibly beautiful place!

Mom and cubs grazing by the campground

You can see "Winnie" and her two cubs grazing in the tideflats by our campground. They were not afraid to get "up close and personal" with us. This was probably shot around 10 or 11 at night.

Hiking through Mikfik Creek

Here we are hiking across Mikfik Creek on our way back to the campground. We made sure not to disturb the bears who were fishing in the creek.

Standing Bear

This bear is looking for salmon swimming up the creek. Bears have eyesight as good as you and me. He is hoping he can find some more fish to eat.

Bear walking through the grass

I don't know which bear this is, but I love how the sun reflects off his back. He was passing behind us on his way to the creek.
