Just sitting here, day dreaming of some of my Alaska travels … and wishing I was back in Hallo Bay !
This image was made during one of our excursions to the beach area at Hallo Bay, Alaska. In late May/early June, everyone waits with anticipation as the brown bear sows move from their dens, high in the mountains surrounding Hallo Bay, to the beach at Hallo Bay, with their brand-new, spring cubs! These triplet cubs had just arrived at Hallo Bay with mom (she’s there, but just out of the frame), and was captured nearly 10 years ago. Spring cubs are so much fun to watch, constantly playing and jumping on each other! As I write this post, I’m longing to be back at Hallo Bay!
