I am impressed with the pic of the bear chasing the hound, Know that I couldn't have taken such a great shot while running the other way with the camera pointed back over my shoulder.

Thanks for sharing...Should give you my address in case there is more smoked salmon then your family can eat...lol

beagle: Great photos, I love that one of the brown bear chasing your hound. Keep the photos coming I really enjoy seeing Alaska photos, I lived there 16 years and really miss it.

Thanks for the pics, reminiscing of finer days gone by - brings a tear to my eye!
I left after we finished building the pipeline road. 2nd biggest mistake of my life.

Mike Rainbow River Lodge is just up the crik from us,we caretake it and Copper River Lodge as well. With the big salmon runs lately the fishing has been better than I can ever remember. My wife and I are avid hunters and give the local brown bears a run for the $$.Click the image to open in full size.Click the image to open in full size.
We are allowed a bear a year apiece within 2.5 miles from the mouth of the Copper!
