After lunch we returned to Silver Salmon Creek and took a short walk. As we were leaving we crossed paths with a park ranger and were able to get a NP stamp for our NP Passport. Then we drove down the beach to the Johnson River. We saw some seals and an eagle on an island in the delta. We headed back to the lodge On a trail away from the beach. We again encountered the mama bear & 2 cubs. However, this time there was a male bear nearby, which kept mama on the lookout for where he was at all times. After watching for a while, we headed back to the lodge and then the beach. Tim from Natron Air picked us up at 5:00 PM for our return to Soldotna.
