PART IV — Each year while photographing Bears (weather permitting) we have the opportunity to take a boat to a nearby tiny island which we call Puffin Island. The island is made up mostly of rocky cliffs with a small beach. Here colonies of Horned Puffins nest and breed.
PART III — Our guide took us to a bear who was relaxing on a log near a small inlet. Unfortunately, the mosquitos were so bad that he couldn't get comfortable. His solution was fun to watch and gave me the images for this series.
PART II — There's more to see and enjoy in the park besides bears. Occasionally you'll see a fox or a black bear. Eagles make nests in the trees where they have fresh fish in their front yard, and the meadows are full of wildflowers. I was lucky to catch an Eagle sitting on a piece of driftwood on the beach.
PART I — Each summer for the past eleven years I've headed to Lake Clark National Park in Alaska to spend a little time with the Coastal Brown Bears. There are no roads to the area on Cook Inlet where the bears congregate. Weather permitting we take a small "Bush" plane from Anchorage landing on the beach near our lodge.
