Today’s post comes from the now defunct Hallo Bay Bear Camp, located along the Katmai National Park coast, near Kodiak Island in Alaska. I have traveled to this exceeding beautiful location many times over the years … until the camp owner passed and the land went back into the hands of the National Park Service.
This area was always so amazing … beautiful, snow-capped peaks nearby, volcanoes in the not-so-far distance, and such wonderful wildlife … Alaskan coastal brown bears, salmon runs, bald eagles, wolves, moose, red fox, etc., etc.
One of the unique things about this camp was that it was never very predictable with regards to the weather. Weather would change, often drastically, out of the blue. This image was captured in camp one afternoon, when a storm began to form, without warning, over the camp:
I have many fond memories of this camp, and will be featuring more camp images as I continue to edit my older images.
