We started off our trip to Valdez with a sighting of this beautiful grizzly. She was meandering through the brush next to the road and only briefly checked on us as we stopped and I photographed her. Her fur looked so soft and she was moving and hanging out in such a lazy fashion that I could see why people would be deceived about how dangerous she really is. It is not uncommon to come across these bears when in Valdez, especially during the salmon runs. Just remember to give them plenty of space and if he/she desires your fish then let them have them, you can always catch more.
