Dinner time at the salmon run

After some time working on a remote island in Alaska, I was able to experience Katmai National Park and watch the grizzlies claim their fishing spots along Brooks Falls. It was an experience I'll never forget. We would see upwards of 11 bears fishing at once, some far more successful than others.
