    Nice shots Ron. One thing of note though, Sliver Salmon Creek is not in Katmai, it's an inholding in Lake Clark NP.
  14. Ron what a thrill it must have been to witness these bears up close. I just watched one of Art Wolf's shows from Katmai last night. Makes me want to go real bad. Beautiful captures.
