Hey Folks,

As I’m leaving today, friday, for 2 weeks in Katmai National Park on our Brown Bear Photo Tour, I thought I’d post this shot from last year’s trip. I can’t wait to get back over to Katmai and see the bears again; always a treat.

I’ll be back in 2 weeks, with (hopefully) some new brown bear photos. I’ve scheduled some posts for the interim, so check in every few days.

See ya soon.

    Just getting caught up on my blog reading Carl and this shot just stopped me in my tracks. Amazing how much you can almost tell what they are thinking by the looks in their eyes.

    Hey Mark

    Thank you. I appreciate it. They’re just so cool to be around, to watch and to photograph, regardless how many times we do it. Bears rock.
