The sun is just coming up over The Cook Inlet.  This young Brown Bear and its sibling, orphans whose mother was killed in 2016, are wary of other bears - their biggest danger during salmon run.  Once winter sets in, their biggest danger will be starvation.  They both look very healthy, thought, and have the advantage of experience.  They made it through their first winter on their own.  Hope these guys make it again this winter.
