I “Break” for Bears

Candice Gaukel Andrews September 29, 2011 4

Calm, stoic strength. The consummate mother. Introspection. A symbol of the wild itself. No matter what bears represent for you personally, you are sure to have an opinion on them and what their proper relationship with us should be.

That’s why watching them is so intriguing and why bear-viewing trips are popular with nature travelers. But when we can’t be “out there” in the remote areas that bears like to frequent, virtual travels come in handy.

Brad Josephs, a Natural Habitat Adventures Expedition Leader since 2005, has a passion for photography and put together the following footage he took during his 2010 Alaskan tours.

So whether you’re in your office or your favorite armchair, take a 15-minute break—for bears—and depart on a mini Natural Habitat Adventure!

Here’s to finding your true places and natural habitats,

    Just incredible footage! I couldn’t believe just how close those bears left the wolves get. Just beautiful, “Thank you.”
