Fish Creek in the Tongas National Forest is one of the few places on earth where one can view both black and brown bears in the wild. The massive and powerful bears roam along Fish Creek, snatching up salmon and skinning them on the rocks for tourists to gawk at. The raised boardwalk allows for a great vantage point. Unfortunately, there were no bears around when I was there. I would later see one on the way out which I captured with my P&S camera. It was down in the creek obscured by limbs so I doubt I have a great pic of the massive grizzly bear. They can often times double their weight in the fall by gorging on fish, fat they need to sustain through hibernation in a long winter.
In May 2014 I quit my job to ride a Honda Ruckus over 55'000 mi and counting. Wild camping most nights and cooking most of my own meals, I keep the costs low and the landscape changing.
