Don’t just take it from us, here’s a little reflective insight from one of our guests Kristen @bearfoottheory about putting that big old backpack on everyday. 📷 @bearfoottheory ・・・ I really love this picture. It represents that moment when you become one with the pack...that moment when you take a deep breath and tighten that hip belt till you can't cinch it any tighter, and tell yourself it's not that heavy. 😂 ————— @alaskagurus . . . #alaska#alaskagurus
Photo by @daisygilardini I Grizzly bear fur comes in a range of colours, from light brown to dark brown, and can change during the seasons. Cubs often have a light-coloured collar, which usually disappears when they become adults. Bears’ coats are naturally thicker and more coarse during the winter months than in summer. As it grows warmer in spring, bears shed their inner fur and guard hair. Bears can look really shabby and funny during this transition period. The name “grizzly,” interestingly, derives from the greyish or grizzled tips of their fur. #bear#grizzlybear ...
✨NEW BLOG POST✨ Can you believe this incredible place is the second least visited #nationalpark in the US? • @LakeClarkNPS is a remote national park in Alaska with rugged beauty and true wilderness.

I love the mountains 🏔 in this photo of a brown bear we watched for a while. Bears eat more than just salmon and berries. It turns out they also eat grass, and .... clams! This one was digging up a storm. #soultravelers#glaciersandgrizzlies

Timing was crucial on this shot. Not being able to see where the bear cub was going to pop up at, a manual focused shot was a must with the tall grass. A short window of opportunity and aimed in the right location led to one happy photographer. Happy Friday everyone! #bearcub#alaska

Alaska | October 2019 After getting to spend amazing time with dad and getting my grizzly bear, I went hiking to the waterfalls with my brother and his girlfriend which was such a blessing. My mom and my sister also flew in that same day. . . . #beautyinanything#buildingmydream
Man, I held my 100-400 lens forever as this puffin perched on the rock. Just as my arms were about to fall off, it launched into flight. What a fun trip to Alaska. . . . . . #birdsofinstagram#birds
The hunt is on for the next salmon. These bears eat up to 40 salmon a day to gain lots of weight before hibernation. They are the lucky ones, protected due to living in a National Park, but I’m very concerned about their friends that aren’t. . . #bears#brownbear
One of the many coastal brown bears @iamrems007 and me had the opportunity to watch during our visit to Lake Clark National Park with @nathanielsmalley.nowtours (Nathaniel Smalley’s Alaska photo your). The mountain the backdrop is the slope mountain which was one of the prominent peaks we could see from any direction while we were at silver salmon creek. @bbcearth @bbc_travel @natgeotravel @natgeoyourshot @natgeoadventure @vivekvvk @lakeclarknps @nationalparkgeek @alaskanps @reallyrightstuff ========================================= #animal_captures #animals_in_world ...

Who Needs Ducks? Most of us, with any experience, know that life isn’t easy. It’s got its ups and downs and we weather those undulations with varying degrees of grace. Taking time to step back and look at life’s overall contours can sometimes help put things back into perspective. When perspective is warped and distorted, however, getting some help isn’t a weakness, it’s a sign of fortitude and endurance. Asking for help takes a leap of faith and great courage. Like a mother duck with a trailing line of ducklings, we’d all like to have all of our ducks in ...
I photographed this pair of brown bear cubs in Lake Clark National Park, Alaska. These two cubs were grazing in an open field with a third cub and their mother who kept a watchful eye out for any unwanted competition. I was unsure if the photos would turn out due to the weather, but the bears posed nicely and the rain just added to the scene.

🐻Some of my favorite bear photos from Alaska 🐻 . . . I did a ton of research to figure out when, where and how to see bears in Alaska and instead of just getting rid of all that info, I shared it all on my blog with the hopes that all my homework will help someone else out!

I think every photographer has their unicorn. A fabled creature. Impossible to capture. For me, my unicorn has been the fox. Mysterious, elusive, and illusory. Every encounter I have had with them has lead to failure. I can see them, I just can’t capture them. I am not sure I understand them. They tend to appear when least expected which means you always have to be ready. “A fairy tale scene out of a children’s book. The content look on his face as he enjoys his meal.” #unicorn#eleanor ...
Standing Tall When conditions make an average photograph difficult, perhaps it’s time to look for something other than average. A setting sun usually means great light but when these bears locate themselves in tall beach grasses, gobbling up beach pea plants as they go, clumps and blades of grasses can render what might otherwise be a beautiful shot, rather useless. I decided, instead, to shoot from behind the bears. Grasses would then become ornaments to decorate a willing palette and the golden glow of setting sunlight through dense fur would reveal only a fiery aura of a bear. I can ...
CHAPTER 2: SAFARI. "Ever seen an coastal brown bear fish with her cub? Two hulking muskoxen spar for dominance? Or a 30,000-pound fish wave its tail in front of your snorkeling mask? Africa isn’t the only place with awe-inspiring wildlife. And animals are just the beginning of what makes this chapter's #glamping destinations so spectacular." —Comfortably Wild: The Best Glamping Destinations in North America.

“Live each day as you would climb a mountain. An occasional glance toward the summit keeps the goal in mind, but many beautiful scenes are to be observed from each new vantage point. So climb slowly, enjoying each passing moment; and then the view from the summit will serve a more rewarding climax for your journey.” Fulton J Sheen. #vantagepoint#brownbear
Think you can outrun a bear? Think again! When meandering along their daily routes, one can be lulled into thinking that brown bears are slow and lethargic. No doubt, they can be much of the time, but give them a reason to run and they will show you much more agility and stealth. They can surpass speeds of 30 miles per hour. That's faster than any human. #brownbears

This guy had a birthday over the weekend. I got him this private island, that’s even named after him! Kidding, of course.😜 • We did kayak to this island (which is called Tommy Island) earlier this summer and had the entire thing to ourselves so technically it was a private island. Happy belated birthday to my paddling partner! • • • #lakeclark#lakeclarknationalpark
Family Photos. Mom brought her 7-month old around for photos. The youngster was very cooperative, making my job easy. She posed like a professional model. I had so much fun that I only charged her 3 beach peas, a side of salmon, and two pints of blueberries! #brownbears
Flying out of Lake Clark NP from Port Alsworth is an adventure in itself. You fly north through the river valley looking for moose down below with mountains and glaciers on your right and left. #portalsworth#alaska @lakeclarknps
