Katmai National Park and Preserve in southern Alaska is notable for its brown bears. The park covers 7,383 square miles, being roughly the size of Wales. Established on December 2, 1980, the park is located on the Alaska Peninsula, across from Kodiak Island, with headquarters in nearby King Salmon, about 290 air miles southwest of Anchorage. Katmai is well known for brown bears and the salmon which attract both bears and people. Katmai contains the world's largest protected brown bear population, estimated to number in excess of 2,000. Bears are especially likely to congregate at the Brooks Falls viewing platform when the salmon are spawning, and many well known photographs of brown bears have been taken there.

This video begins as our seaplane lands on Naknek Lake in Katmai National Park. Our day in Katmai started off slow, no bears. This was Mark's (our pilot) first trip to the park in 2007 and the salmon were just starting their run. But finally after a couple hours we did get to see several bears. We saw them first at the lower station at the floating bridge over Brooks River and then later up at Brooks Falls. The video concludes as we get back on the seaplane and fly away.

This video is an overview of my trip to the park. To see my other videos of this day...
