Bear Hunt...

My last post contained a "cute" bear scratching his back on a park sign. Most of our bear sightings have been less enjoyable. And sometimes a little scary. When we floated down the Kobuk River a few years ago we saw a bear intently trotting up the river bed in hot pursuit of a cow moose and her calf....

The bear disappeared into the brush about two minutes after the moose so he certainly could have caught up with them. Later we did hear the sound of running moose hooves on the rocks of a dry channel but we'll never know if the calf escaped.

You can see photos from our Alatna River float trip here.
