Ok, time to get the party started,This sow was on a mission, and indeed a successful one as well! Lake Clark Nat. park , Alaska Homestead Lodge, guide Scott, delivered, and then some. Every outing was different, and i was totally blown away how he was always a step ahead of the bears, as we always manged to get into the right place at the right time. I also learned first hand, how difficult, eye contact is with this large mammals, and their unique behavior. Hope you enjoy the series. Safety, for the bears, and myself was always paramount, and the last thing we need is another innocent bear killed because of a photographer! Scott my guide, is a master guide/ naturalist, and at all times, showed a total respect for the bears, and never did he allow pressure, or anything that would change their behavioral due to my presence!! Boy did i learn a bunch on this trip!! Please click on image to darken bkg! Finally, you know you are wondering what happened next.... stay tuned!!
