Following some bears in Hyder, Alaska

October 3, 2007

I've seen a lot of bears this year, but unfortunately earlier in the year I didn't know how to use the video controls on my camera. These days I do know how to use the video controls, and on my way back into the town of Hyder (as opposed to the more rural area up in the mountains) I came across a momma bear and three cubs. Here are two video segments as I followed momma and the cubs for a little while.

First, here's where I first saw them, as they were eating something off of a rock on the side of the road:

Next, here's where I followed momma bear and the cubs for a little while as they walked back into town:
