Title: 20170806 1271
Description: Brooks Falls must surely be the Bear Utopia of North America! Here bears gather to gorge themselves as salmon swim to their spawning grounds. Fish gather in pools below the Falls for easy grabbing. Other fish are caught by bears while leaping upstream. It is a melee of bears, salmon and birds gathering scraps.
