Description:
My husband and I moved to Kodiak during the summer of 2017. It was our first full week here when we rode out with our friends to Saltery to go fly fishing for salmon and I got to see my first Kodiak brown bear. This sow was so quiet that if her and her cub hadn\'t come down to the bank to check us out we probably would have never know they were there. The cub was especially interested in what we were doing but both were very calm, kept their distance, and then just as quietly disappeared back into the woods. It was such a magnificent encounter and one I\'ll never forget.
