Welcome back to my series of photos and stories about our grizzly bear adventure last year in wilds of British Columbia!
When we were riding along in a float boat or visiting the bear viewing stand alongside the Atnarko River, we never knew when we were going to be surprised with a bear sighting. The anticipation kept us alert! And when we least expected it, one would peek its head out of the bushes along the riverbank!
They could travel hidden through the tall grasses, and then suddenly be poised on the water’s edge, looking for their next meal of tasty salmon.
We kept a steady lookout along the well-worn bear trails, and we were frequently rewarded for our vigilance.
We also kept a lookout in the river to spot partially hidden ones like this fellow!
And every now and then, a particularly handsome bear would pause from its hiding place and graciously allow us to take a formal portrait!
Please come back later to see more of this special photo series!
