Finally returned from 2 separate photography trips - first to Alaska, then to Yellowstone, Tetons, Park City, Page, and finally Albuquerque! It was a fast paced adventure - loaded with wildlife and spectacular landscapes, as well as the amazing balloon fiesta to conclude it all.

Katmai NP is always a highlight when visiting Alaska and in 2012 it was exceptionally spectacular. We were treated to a new area of Katmai (Kaflia Bay) and the most amazing weather ever - at least in Katmai.

To begin sharing images, I have chosen this Katmai coastal brown bear, nicely positioned on the rocky surface below a waterfall. Of course, there were plenty of salmon for the taking, so this bear was quite pre-occupied.

I always wonder what they think when they see humans in their home ... What do you think?
