I spent the months of June and July on the katmai Coast this summer and it was one of the best years i have ever seen. One of the many fantastic aspects was the presence of the second mother with 4 spring cubs that I have seen out there in 25 years!
I will be guiding expeditions during the month of September this year. I hope to stop in to this northern bay at some point to see how this family is faring. Otherwise I will have to wait till next year. After seeing the famous bear 399 of Yellowstone keep her 4 cubs for two summers i have more hope that Parsnip will as well. More updates to come!
