Amazing Bear Camp!

by Terry Tollefsbol

We just returned from a three day trip to Bear Camp. It was absolutely wonderful. The staff at the camp site were very friendly and took great care of us. Excellent meals and wine in the evening. Our guides did everything they could to get us to the best loctaions for photos. We were fortunate to have the viewing platform for when the bears were up in the stream behind the camp and Dylon and Dennis escorted us to the beach area when the bears had moved toward the bay. We never felt threatened even when the bears came within just a few feet of us. Dennis had the S & W 500 and Dillion had the shotgun, but according to both of them, they have never had to use them. Overall it was a great adventure including the beach landings in the Cessna 207! Truly the trip of a lifetime.
