    ... at a time, occasionally resting by climbing onto her back while she does the heavy strokes to keep them afloat.

    Writing about Holly and her cub reminds me of some interesting remarks made by other Park visitors during our stay. As we watched Holly and her cub, one woman repeatedly vocalized her worry for the young bear, at times saying “I can’t watch” and covering her eyes as she expressed aloud the desire for someone to ...

    ... visible, better not to see the path I think. The first mile is walking up a fairly steep drainage in deep vegetation. Visibility is about 30 yards ahead, too close for a bear encounter. We talk and yell “hey bear - ho bear” the whole way. Other times we clap our hands to alert any bears to our use of the trail. There are many bear signs and side trails that cross our trail and several bedding sites right along it. We struggle with our packs up ...

    We finished lunch around 1:00 p.m. or so and got ready for another trek out to the falls. We needed to be back to the lodge by 4:00 p.m. to catch our float plane back to King Salmon, but that left a few hours for more bear viewing. Thankfully, every walk through the woods has been uneventful for ...

    ... at the bears, then lunch, then the rest of the day viewing the bears at Brooks Falls).

    After lunch, we headed for the bridge again, only to be stopped by the rangers. There were a number of bears less than 50 yards from the path or the bridge. One bear was around 35 yards away, but was sleeping, so they allowed us to cross with the rangers (they asked for the wheelchair to go first which, of course, meant Dad). I should mention here that we met a ...
