Bear Safari

Up close and personal with Grizzly Bears!!

Bears chasing Salmon, eating Salmon, Sleeping on the snow and doing aerobics ... now that would be "Baerobics"

Emerald Air Services of Homer, Alaska ( http://www.emeraldairservice.com/ ) offers a Float Plane Bear Safari day trip deep into Katmai National Park.

Most difficult part was hiking 4 miles carring my EOS D60, Canon 400mm/F2.8 Mk II (non IS), Canon Mk II TC 2x, Gitzo 1228, AcraSwiss Ballhead and Wimberly Sidekick all mounted and ready to go.
