“Watching the brown bears from the viewing platforms at Brooks Falls was truly memorable. Sub-adults trying to catch a salmon, cubs playing and climbing up and down trees, and mother bears charging to protect their cubs. But sharing the trails with the bears and having them walk right by me was surreal.

Many thanks to our Nat Hab guides (Daniel Hagaman and Katherine) and the Katmai National Park rangers for keeping us all safe.”
