Jan and Bob Zimmerman were on a private photo tour in mid-August with RGA owner Joe Ordonez. Bob had the expensive camera. Jan had a simpler model. She captured these bears fishing along the Chilkoot River with a little patience and a simple click of the camera.
In early July National Geographic came down to the Lynn Canal with Yukon Vet Michelle Oakley and enlisted Rainbow Glacier Adventures’ guides Robert Chadwell and Bri Agenbroad to lead a kayak tour out to the Steller sea lion haul out across from Mud Bay. It was a perfect blue day to approach the strange cacophonous society of bellowing creatures.
