SUNDAY, JUNE 24, 2007:

It was a very rainy day on Sunday when I flew to Redoubt Bay with Rust's Flying Service.

It is a beautiful area and there was only a light rain at the beginning of our trip.

After a couple hours the light rain turned into a monsoon and we returned to the lodge early.

MY DAILY EMAIL SENT SUNDAY, JUNE 24, 2007
Hello Everyone,

Today was a very wet day but I didn't let that stop me. Today I went bear watching. I flew to Redoubt Bay which is about a 45 minute flight from Anchorage by sea plane. After our arrival at the small remote lodge we had lunch and then went out to spend the afternoon on the lake looking for bears and other wildlife. It rained the entire time we were on the boat. At times it was only a light drizzle but other times it absolutely poured and the small boat only had a very small tarp overhead which did not shield us from the pouring rain. We saw three black bears. We watched them for quite a while snatching salmon out of the lake. There were also a slew of fisherman on the lake. It was fun watching them as well. There were so many salmon in the lake they literally jumped out of the lake into the fisherman's nets. We went back to the lodge about 90 minutes early because we were all soaked and cold. It was just me, a couple from Atlanta, a couple from Nashville and the guide. We got to know each other quite well huddled together trying to stay out of the rain under the small tarp. We got back to the lodge and dried out and warmed up. But we had to wait there for almost two hours for our sea plane to come back and pick us up. The attached photo is of the three bears we saw. Hoping for dryer weather tomorrow. As I am writing this it is just past midnight and I think it will be getting dark soon.



More later,
