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.
