We were close enough to hear the two cubs growling as they fought over a salmon that Mom brought to them.
After about an hour at the falls, we headed down the bay to another falls, where we watched a black bear meandering along the shore. He walked past the falls for a great photo op.
The guide showed us an outhouse on the shore near a popular salmon fishing spot. It had been tipped over and destroyed by grizzlies. He said that brown bears are like human 2-year-olds. They put everything in their mouth to explore it and get into all kinds of mischief. He said that a young male bear played with the toilet seat for some time, making it slap and clap. We saw such a young male grizzly, possibly the bear of toilet-seat fame, exploring a line of rowboats cached on a lonely shore by a fishing party. The bear chewed some of the wood on the seat of a rowboat, but didn’t find it tasty enough to wreck the boat.
