Description: My wife and I had been planning our Brooks Falls trip for a year and a half. When we finally arrived at Brooks Camp in late July of 2017 and had our obligatory bear safety talk with the park rangers, we hurried out to the Falls. There we were overwhelmed by the sight of half a dozen bears feasting on salmon. This photo was taken of a bear fishing in what is known as the Jacuzzi portion of the Falls. We both ended up having a good catch that day.
