Haines, Alaska, Photo Album
The Chilkoot River is one of the best places for bear viewing in Alaska. The best times to see brown bears (Ursus arctos) here are in April and early May due to eulachon ("hooligan") runs in the river, and various times from mid-June until mid-October due to 4 salmon runs. This photo (and 100 or so more) were shot on May 4th while giving a tour company manager a look at the region.
