Our first Grizzly!

Anchored in Elle Cove on Baranof Island. On the short 8 NM ride up Chatham Straight the humpbacks put on a show. We saw a multitude of blows and a half dozen flukes before a deep dive. After dropping the hook we enjoyed lunch on the aft deck and Macky spotted a bear on shore. He was a lighter brown and had the distinctive grizzly hump on his back. Our first grizzly! He ate grass and we all enjoyed a leisurely lunch together for well over an hour.
Put the dinghy down and explored Waterfall Cove and Kasnyku Falls.
The steep granite sides of our Anchorage cascades up to snowy ridges. Old growth spruce, cedar, and hemlock cover the slopes.
