There’s nothing more beautiful than the great outdoors. Enjoying the fresh country air, the peace and quiet, watching animals interact with nature… Or a bear coming straight towards you?!
Every year, the largest gathering of brown bears in the world happens in Alaska’s McNeil River State Game Sanctuary. This happens between June and August with the bears arriving at the river’s falls to fish for salmon.
Access to the park for humans is rather limited, but every year, a handful of very lucky visitors are allowed to come and photograph the bear congregation at McNeil Falls. For years people have been visiting the same spot but they have to behave in orderly conduct as to not frighten the bears.
