Hey Folks,

By now, all going according to plan, I should be almost getting back from the Katmai National Park Grizzly Bear Photo Tour; here’s an image from last year’s tour, just in case we don’t have much luck this fall. 3 gorgeous young cubs slipping down to water’s edge for a look around, before slinking back to the forest.

Next photo should be from 2011. See ya soon.

    What a cool shot, Carl! The cubs look so amazingly fluffy, and great touch of autumn color on the left. Looking forward to your shots from the recent trip!

    Hey Pat,

    Thanks so much. The cubs last year were definitely a highlight. This year there far fewer, but we still had a great 2 weeks.
