Walking With the Brown Bears in Hallo Bay by 

Did we really walk through this estuary and find that mutual respect between bear and man? Yes indeed it’s possible… to walk in Alaskan brown bear (read: grizzly) country, up close and personal, and do so safely. The key ingredient… a guide like Dave Bachrach of Go See Bears who knows everything to watch your every step. Remarkable.

    ….where you say “handheld”, I would have added “and running….Fast!!!”
    Great shot!!!

  • You’re making me chuckle David because I started to wander off to take a shot of some flowers, and the guide reminded me that I really really really didn’t want to do that! Thanks for stopping by! AMR

    Whew! Nice one! Just a bit disconcerting the way those ears are down… You’ve got mighty steady hands!

  • Hmm, I’m sure the guide was watching every movement of the ears, facial expressions…:-)! AMR
