Bear Farewell

Last day aboard the Coastal Explorer and photographing bears along the Katmai coast.  We had a few familiar faces visit this morning to feed on the salmon streams and a sow and cub put on a good show for us.  To view brown bears up close and personal like we did was amazing, hair raising at times, but absolutely incredible!  Its hard to leave...

We flew by floatplane back to Kodiak Island this afternoon and passed over several pods of whales including Humpbacks and Fin Whales.  We'll head back to Anchorage tomorrow.
