Katmai Mother And Cubs

Todays photographs come from Katmai, Alaska again. But they are not from Brooks Falls like the others. These bears were in the area of the bridge that crosses the stream the bears fish from. This can be a difficult bridge to cross as the bears are in the area often. The rangers have gates at each end and only open them when it is safe to do so. You could wait for hours before getting across causing you to miss your plane back to the main land.

The bottom photo is the mother bear after she stepped from the woods to check the area. While she was doing this the two cubs stayed back, Shane seen them and got a good shot, it can be seen at this link The top photo is after the mother insured the area was safe, she and the cubs crossed the water I can only assume for better eating.
