Bear Watching

There is a raised wooden walkway over a creek where the salmon come in to spawn. There were fish bodies everywhere - dead, dying, and spawning. It smelled. There were gulls screaming at each other as they pecked at salmon bodies. A black bear idly walked up and down the creek selecting the best fish for his dinner. We watched him for about 20 minutes before he disappeared from view. The walkway is controlled by the U.S. Forest Service. Since you can't get to Hyder unless you come from Stewart, BC, make sure you bring your passport with you.
