2017 is shaping​ up as another great year for Bears & Puffins

It seems like just yesterday, but 2017 will be my 18th year returning to the Cook Inlet in Alaska to photograph America's most spectacular animals.  

Spending a week [6 nights, giving us 5 full and two partial shooting days for the second session, (or 5 nights for the first session) -- longer than other trips to the area] with Alaskan Coastal Brown Bears, often called Grizzlies, is truly a life-changing experience. Unlike the bears at Brooks Lodge in Katmai, which are stressed out and offer very limited viewing, we'll be able to see bears in their native and un-stressed environment.

One day the bears will be grazing on the nutrient rich grass and the next they'll be up to their shoulder digging in the mud for clams. Without question these are my favorite weeks of the year.
