Aug 26, 2017 - National Geographic Sea Bird
The morning began with an exchange of rain and sun, the typical indecisiveness of weather that nourishes the temperate rain forest of Southeast Alaska. As the tide fell beneath our feet, our guests took to land at Lake Eva to walk amidst the Sitka Spruce and dense understory of the forest. As expected, the salmon filled the stream fed by the lake and wherever the fish are, so will the characteristic mammals that feed upon them be. Our bear was spotted mid steam, pinning a salmon to a rock, picking off the tastiest portions. Cantering back and forth in the wash of the river, our guests enjoyed the bear’s relaxed demeanor as it did what it does best in the late summer season. A beautiful encounter to highlight our first full day, with much more of what Alaska has to give headed our way.
