A brown bear relaxing as she feeds on grasses near the Silver Salmon Lodge in Alaska. A cub hops a ride with mom on her back, evoking a “Kilroy was here” moment on the beach in Alaska. Cubs will play with just about anything! Bears are about as Alaskan as you can get. Here’s a sow sedging as she raises two cubs. American Bison roam #YellowstoneNP now much as they did thousands of years ago. When bears aren’t sedging in Alaska, they are hunting for clams. A cub’s first time on the flats looks to mom as she clams in the sand. A hopeful cub on a tidal flat in Alaska hoping for a quick meal from mom! Staring down a deer in Texas Guanaco in the mountainous regions of Patagonia. The Chilean guanaco near Torres del Paine in southern Chile. Everybody needs to scratch that itch one time or another … A light rain falls on a bear staring intently back at me.
