The Salmon Run

A small creek in a tiny little village in Alaska – known for its Salmon Run in the early Alaskan summer months.

Sometime in June every year the Salmon come from the Pacific Ocean and race to their spawning grounds. A few weeks later, Grizzly and Black Bears realize that food is served. That’s when they come to fish for Salmon in this Creek.

On my road trip to Alaska this year I visited this place for the third time and for two days early in the morning I could watch this Grizzly having a feast, catching and eating 4 Salmon the first day and 3 the second day.
