These photos are from my 3-day trip into the Katmai National Preserve. Some of these bears got as close as 10 feet from me. Bears had already been one of my favorite animals, and after spending time with them "up close and personal" I can appreciate and respect them even more. Watermark will not appear on purchased photographs.
