This was taken on Clark Beach in Clark National Park, Alaska, which is reachable only by plane or boat (during high tide). We landed after spotting him from the air and walked carefully towards this wild grizzly. It was a long winter so he was hungry and busy digging for clams. He looked up at me for a couple of seconds and continued clamming. I was within 100 ft of this bear.
