Title: mama at the weir
Description: While driving through the weir safety zone in Haines, I spotted this bear sitting in the woods across from the weir. She appeared to be patiently waiting for the worker to finish counting the fish in the weir so she could resume feeding. As there is no stopping permitted in the safety zone, I had my camera ready in case she was still there when we went back through the safety zone and clicked away as we drove by.
