On my second week of my Alaska Bear and Puffin Tour we didn’t see the red fox who had become such a fixture on my first week. That is, until he showed up briefly my second to last evening – just in time!

So Many Cubs!

Home from a second amazing week with bears! Three sets of spring cubs this year! Plus, so much more. Along with few human visitors, so far the summer of 2020 has exceeded my high expectations. This is the famous sow crimp with triplets born this past winter.

The folks who were willing to wade through the maze of testing and other covid requirements were sure awarded with an absolutely amazing trip! Three sows appeared with spring cubs, including our favorite Crimp who has triplets this year! We saw lots of nursing, cubs playing, clam digging, even a wolf and fox, it was incredible. Plus, were basically the only ones in the fields the whole time. Looks like 2020 will be a year to remember in Alaska.
