Brown Bear Safari - Aug 2021
We met in Anchorage and flew down to a remote lodge on the shore of Lake Iliamna. For our first day in the field, we flew to Brooks Camp in Katmai National Park. Capturing images of fish jumping towards the bears and creating slow motion water images were both popular. There were plenty of hungry bears this time of year at Brooks Falls.
In the age of covid we knew it was possible that one of our workshops could be impacted. We returned to our remote lodge one day to find out that several staff members tested positive for covid. We decided to be cautious and stay longer to quarantine before headed home. Thankfully, none of our group became sick and the staff only showed mild symptoms.
We were thankful that our entire group had been vaccinated as well as the lodge staff. We also made a note to always carry extra medication, flash cards and passwords in case this happens in the future.
