Weekly Photo Challenge: Dreaming

Hi everyone!  I’m actually still in Alaska (long story I’ll save for next week) but have connectivity back!  When I saw the challenge subject thought I’d better take the time to submit one of the photos from the trip.  This was actually one of the first photos that I took upon arrival in Hallo Bay, Alaska.  This young lady was just snoozing away looking very comfortable in the sand.  I sure she’s dreaming of the coming Salmon run or some other subject of importance to Brown Bears.  This will be the first of my Bear series – Many more to come.  Hope you enjoy!

Do Bears count sheep or salmon?

    She’s absolutely beautiful. Omg. Is she free, or in a nature reserve? Makes me sad for the guys I see in the zoo when I see a bear SO content in the wild like this one. Precious!! 😀

    • Rach – she’s most definitely free…..and relaxed.

        wow!!! are they close to civilisation, or do you have to go far out of towns n off roads to find them like this?

      • They are on a remote area of the Alaska Penninsula – you have to take a small plane to get there – no roads or towns
