Bears of Silver Salmon Creek

August 06, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Silver Salmon Creek is located on Cooks Inlet in Lake Clark National Park,  accessible by small plane one hour west of Anchorage, Alaska. It's also the home of about 400 Alaskan Coastal Brown bears (a larger variety of grizzly).  My fellow photographer, Gordon Kilgore, and I were headed there to photograph the wildlife but were delayed by bad weather grounding the planes.

Usually the only way to reach Silver Salmon Creek is by small plane landing on the beach, since there are no roads. David Coray, owner of the Silver Salmon Creek Lodge was finally able to arrange alternative transportation by shuttle and then a 35 mile boat trip across Cooks Inlet in rain and sometimes dense fog. He, his staff, and guides do an unbelievable job and made our stay one that we will never forget.
