I have lost a dvd with pictures from our 2007 trip to Wolverine Creek. This bear swam around the boat numerous times and stopped and snacked on lily pads. I have looked everywhere and I finally gave up and scanned the picture from my album. Makes me sad, makes me kind of mad at myself that I lost something that I value. I will continue to look and just like the other day I will probably find two other things that I looked for earlier!
We (Robert & Peggy Smith, Jack and I and our guide, Reubin Payne ) were sitting in a boat about 15 feet from this boat. Everyone was looking at a huge bear (check out the picture of 1/5/2012… that’s the bear that was sitting on a rock and quickly jumped in the water after a salmon). I don’t think that the guys in this boat were aware of how close the bear was to them. Wolverine Creek is always one of those days that you will never forget.
There were 6 bears that swam around us that were fishing, just like us. This big boy jumped in and got his fish! I have video of the other bears swimming around us. Wolverine Creek is a fly across the Gulf of Alaska. The plane puts you and your guide down and comes back later that day. It is an amazing experience. We just got a call from Tony at the cabins in Alaska. He has a spot for us! YEAH! Come on 8/1/2012.
