Blonde Coastal Brown Bear
An Award Winning and Published 30" x 20" HD Matte Metal for $405.00 delivered to your door.
In July of 2021, I went on a Backcountry Journey's trip called "Unchartered Territory".
This was on a private property few know about in southern Alaska to photograph Coastal Brown Bears in THEIR environment. It was a tough but rewarding experience.
When we arrived the scenery was magnificent!
Our tents were already set up in a bear safe formation with an electric wire around in case any bear got curious.
Being in THEIR environment was VERY humbling. We followed bear safety rules the entire 5 days there. The first day we found bear tracks in on the beach! No one had a handy ruler but these were quite intimidating for sure. How would you react to seeing these enormous footprints!?!
After hiking a mile or so on wet sand, we ventured out into a large Sedge Grass river delta and into ankle deep saturated mud! That's where these bears were gorging on the sedge grass. They were nothing more than curious about these humans with all our cameras and tripods.
Once out into that sedge grass field we encountered several Brown Bears over the next few days, including this Mama Bear with her only cub. She's on the lookout for any aggressive male bears that would kill her cub just to mate with her and spread his genes!
But my favorite was this Blondie!
Blondie spotted our group and just went back to eating as much sedge grass him or her could. And this Blonde Coastal Brown Bear never bothered us and we never got closer than 100 yards away in our group of about 15 people. Safety and respect first!
