Bear and Moose at Denali Park

June, 2000

Ken Hunter along with Gayle and Neal Hunter were on the tour through Denali Park when they saw this grizzly bear pursuing a small dall sheep. All these shots are testament to the success of the chase and the "grizzly" results. A standard line from the tour guide is "You can "oo" and "ah" over the elk and the moose, but if you see a bear, get back on the bus!" After this kind of scene, they shouldn't take too much convincing. These are Ken's shots from the bus window.

Not all of the tour through Denali was so violent. They also got to see the bucolic content of this moose cow.

This is a shot of what the moose does all day, all summer long, to store enough fat for the harsh Alaska winter.
