Ketchikan Rainforest and Bear Tour

The rainforest area to the south of Ketchikan is an area where Salmon come to die and where Bears come to feed and occasionally find a live one they can help on its way. A number of rope suspension walkways have been constructed so the guests can observe from a safe distance. We spent over two hours at the site and it was eerie to see bears walking the paths we had trodden a short while earlier. While we did see a number of bears at close quarters and bears flipping salmon out of the river, we did not see leaping salmon being caught by a bear sitting on a rock.

  1. Really liked the “Crossed Logs” pic. First one sees the logs, then notices the expired salmon, finally the birds in flight. Many layers with a deceptively simple title. Also like the intent, wide open eyes caught on the bear pics. Truly eerie (or ERIE, as in the “Dead Crane” pic). We saw a more benign Ketchikan, having taken a smooth, sunny-day, float-plane trip to an inn on a fjord where we ate Dungeness crab. Yum!! Wished you and Liz could have been there, too.
