One morning Trucker was out having her morning tea at the bear overlook at camp. I was walking around camp taking pictures of fireweed in the morning light and dew. I approached the cabin and Trucker was walking towards me with wide eyes making hand signals. She was trying to tell Beth the biologist that the bears were coming into camp. A mother and her two cubs curiously walked right up to the viewing platform. Beth clapped her hands towards them, and calmly said, “Get, get.” The bears turned around and went the other direction. If Beth is out there and sees this, I want her to know she is an amazing bear whisperer and we love her!
Watching the young bears play is as exciting as watching the bears fish in the river.
McNeil River State Game Sanctuary is truly a magical place.
