Katmai NP Bear-viewing trip

The highlight of our trip - What a fulfillment of a childhood dream! We stayed at Homer Floatplane Lodge and boarded the Emerald Air Floatplane for a one hour flight over Cook Inlet to a Hallo Bay tidal lagoon at the base of Hallo Glacier. The weather was perfect - the best day of the season so far, according to our pilot Chuck and guide Nate. This remote spot is the early summer feeding ground of the Alaskan Brown Bear, largest of the grizzly species.
