Bears, Bears and More Grizzly Bears

We spent two days anchored within the Khutzeymateen Bear Sanctuary.  It was established in 1994 to provide a safe haven for 40-50 grizzly bears that live in the valley.  We had bears 200' from where we were anchored.  Almost every time you looked there would be a bear.

I hear that sailboat Arctic Loon has vegetarians from Seattle aboard, do you think they would still taste good?

The baby cubs are so cute and look so harmless....

These two cubs lost their mom just over a week ago.  Everyone at the Bear Sanctuary hopes they can survive the winter.  Looks like they learned how to dig for clams and we saw them eating grass, let's hope they also learned how to fish for salmon and stay away from the male grizzlies...
