    ... something from the Brooks Lodge. Here we each find copies of “Rods and Wings“, by Ben [get name from internet?] - an Alaskan history, and more specifically, the history of Alaska’s sport fishing lodges, particularly those like Brooks Lodge, that are only accessible by plane. In particular, this is the story of Ray Petersen - a young boy from Chicago, who fell in love with flying and fishing, and Alaska (in that order) - and set about ...

    ... are happy for the leftovers - as are the younger, less-experienced bears, approaching now from down-river. This cycle of feast, selective eating, and scavenging repeats many times over, and we are mesmerized for over an hour.

    ... before it can be grabbed by another bear or one of the flock of ever-watchful gulls and crows.

    We wore hip waders, so were actually able to stand in the stream to watch this spectacle. And even reciprocated when our guide warned us at one moment to move back as a bear approached, Sandra missed her footing and fell backwards into the stream.

    Katmai National Park

    A travel blog entry by wheresgordon on Jul 15, 2010

    I went to the Anchorage International Airport for a flight to King Salmon just west of the Katmai National Park. I then took a bus over to the river and caught a Katmai Air float plane flight to Brooks Lodge in the park. The float plane pulled up at the beach and we were directed to the Visitor Center for our mandatory "Bear Etiquette" training course and safety talk outlining park regulations. I then took my things to the campground, set up ...
