Hey There! It’s Yogi Bear!
Well, maybe not Yogi Bear because after all, he was at Jellystone Park, right? And I’m nowhere near Jellystone!
As you are probably aware, I am in Alaska and on Monday, we flew to Brooks Camp at Katmai National Park. We flew from Anchorage to King Salmon, changed to a seaplane (my first time!) and flew to Brooks Camp, landing on water!
Our room. Yes, we had bunkbeds!! Mine on the left. Hubby is on the right.
You have probably seen the Brooks Falls on nature shows. The salmon must migrate UP these falls to get to their spawning area.
The bears? They are fattening up for winter.
Some of the bears got closer than others. The guy below is a subadult.
A couple of younger bears. Notice that the younger, smaller bears are NOT directly at the falls. The “Big Guys” get those spots!
If you want to check out the CURRENT action at the falls, there is a live cam!
So I’ll share a couple of my videos.
One of the bears most popular with the visitors was a Momma and her FOUR cubs!
The last day, while I was waiting to fly out, I walked out the back door of the dining area and came face-to-face with a large Alaskan Black Bear. He looked at me, shrugged, and walked on!! I, on the other hand, might have hidden behind the door! LOL LOL
I’m on a train today, leaving from Anchorage and arriving in Denali National Park this evening.
And I’ll leave you with one final video. This was a momma and her three cubs on 1 South between Anchorage and Girdwood.
Leave a comment to be in the running for an Alaskan Souvenir!
