    Great time. We went to see and photograph coastal brown bears and that was definitely accomplished. The owners and operators were very fun and very nice. It's not a fancy place, it's a place to go to have a chance to safely observe and learn about bears. I recommend this place highly.

    Join us on our excursion from the Silver Salmon Creek Lodge to Duck Island where we photographed wildlife other than bears. Why is Duck Island named Duck Island when there are no ducks on Duck Island? Because when Captain Cook discovered this area (part of what is now named Cook Inlet), he saw these strange looking birds and thought they were ducks. What they actually were were puffins. ...

    We're in Anchorage at the moment ready to fly back to Florida this evening. I was going to say "ready to fly back home", but "home" for us is wherever we are, although we are looking forward to sleeping in our own bed tomorrow.

    Here are 10 photos taken at Silver Salmon Creek in Lake Clark National Park last Thursday early in the morning. As you'll see the light was fantastic as it danced on the tide pools in the huge mud flats here in the Cook Inlet. We were ...

    ... 30 am, eat breakfast at 8 am, view bears the rest of the morning, eat lunch at 1 pm, take a break, and view bears later in the afternoon, and eat dinner at 7 pm. Sometimes we go out after supper as well when the bears are more active. Meals are served family style.

    In this blog you'll find a selection of photos and a video by Julie. Enjoy
