Yes, I know - Katmai National Park is not in the Arctic, not even in the sub-Arctic. But it is such a unique place, and since it is in Alaska it's technically within the scope of our blog. Now that we got this out of the way, what's so unique about Katmai? in one word: THIS -
Katmai has the largest concentration of Brown Bears in North America, perhaps in the world. There are two important reasons for that:
When I shot these photos, the bear on the left was very unsuccessful; it seemed as if all the salmon are jumping into her friend's mouth! Look: would you say she looks somewhat frustrated?
Life is tough even if you're a giant bear!
I guess it's not a party for the poor fish trying to jump the rapids!
