Alaska ..... Alaskan Brown Bears at Brooks Falls, Katmai National Park.



We spent the day at Brooks Falls in the Katmai National Park today and were rewarded with great views of bears and great weather too!

We left Homer in a gale and rain with the wind gusting to 36 mph and our floatplane hitting every white crest on takeoff.
Fortunately our pilot Tony from Bald Mountain Air Services assured us that the weather was fine on the other side of the Cook Inlet.

We flew over some amazing scenery en-route as we crossed the Katmai National Park with numerous mountains and active volcanoes.

Brooks Falls didn't disappoint with some fantastic views of the large Alaskan coastal bears, which by the way, are the same species as the Grizzly only bigger!

The silver salmon had started their run and there were still a lot of red sockeye salmon showing in the riffles and shallows which the bears were taking advantage of to build up their fat reserves to see them through the long Alaskan winter.
