We are in the Katmai National Preserve, a place where Alaskan grizzlies, among the biggest in the world, roam free in a land rich with salmon and free of human hunters. It is early September and the bears are gathered, uncharacteristically close to one another, where the salmon are running.
As you can see, the bears are heavy already as they continue to fatten up for winter's hibernation. Some will begin there long sleep in just a few weeks.
But today, the weather is perfect. Slightly overcast and mild temperatures. It is a chance for us to walk among one of nature's great predators an reflect upon this extraordinary opportunity to see and be among these great creatures.
Next posting? An Alaskan wrap up.
