The wild grizzlies in these photos were photographed in The Knight Inlet in British Columbia Canada. The inlet is contained within the largest temperate rain forest on earth and has a thriving grizzly bear population.

The bears live in a remote location reachable only by float plane or small boat. We viewed bears from open air wooden platforms that are approximately 12 feet above the bears. The platforms are similar to bird hides familiar to bird watchers. Access to the platforms is carefully limited and regulated. Platform visitors are accompanied by guides.

It was a black bear who turned around and high-tailed it through the driveway, while I slowly backed into the house…startling, but not frightening!

    “Yep. Even better is being able to live in an area where that can be experienced weekly, if not daily.”
    Oh, I would so love that! Thank you for supporting the bears my friend and cheers to you~

      Where I live, there are about 500 or so black bears…but I’ve only seen one in my yard, up close! Other experiences were in Alaska – I miss seeing my furry friends!
      Cheers and *HUGS* to you – I love the photos! Keep them coming…
