Grizzly mother and Cub
Mother and her 1 year old cub are cautiously making their way up the shore of the inlet.
This cub is ever watchful. Seldom are those eyes not looking directly at us.
Sunchaser at its mooring
Mary and Dan in the cockpit of Sunchaser, the 40 foot sailboat that is our base for the duration of our stay in the Khuzmatseen Inlet. Dan was one of the people who worked to have the sanctuary created and has been guiding here for 30 years.
On the meadows a sleeping male grizzly bear. About 18 yrs old he is 155cm at the shoulder when on all 4 paws and likely weighs 450 K. At the moment he is King of the Khutzeymateen.
