“Remain Calm - I Got This” This Brown Bear (Ursus arctos) cub, about 18 months old, was just figuring out how to use that powerful nose. Here it caught the scent of a large male bear (Boar), and soon took off with its mother - right past us.

What was your scariest night of sleep?
Our first backcountry camping setup, seen here. 6 days and 5 nights in bear country, where your kitchen is 50+ yards from your tent, and no food, toiletries, or anything scented stays with you overnight. Otherwise a curious bear might pay a visit...
Not gonna lie, the first night I had a hard time sleeping because I thought every branch scraping the tent was a 🐻!
But following best practices and NPS guidelines helped ensure there was no bear visitor, and @alaskagurus made sure we/they had all the gear needed to last the week.
Check out scenes from Base Camp 1.

Hands down the most beautiful of all my Alaska bush plane flights!

As I headed toward Lake Clark National Park & Preserve from Anchorage, the flooded tide waters and lake-filled greenways gave way to a thin mountain pass that allowed our 10-seat plane to reach Port Alsworth in the heart of the park. This skinny passage provided sweeping views of valleys, glacier fields, snow-capped mountains, and thin waterfalls that seemed to originate in the clouds then plummet to the ground like a tropical stream.

Staring at each of these features, they looked not unlike that which I’d seen in previous Alaska parks: glaciers in Kenai Fjords and Glacier Bay, valleys in Katmai, waterfalls in Wrangell St. Elias, sharp ridges in Aniakchak, and skyward peaks in Denali. But this was a tapestry of all that Alaska had to offer. In this one scenic flight lay before my eyes the entire diversity of Alaska’s natural features. Where one park might over-saturate you with one of the above, Lake Clark provides a taste of each.

As I turned from side to side to catch the views from every window, I realized why this was the most spectacular of all the bush planes I’d flown in Alaska:

Each aspect of the landscape was enhanced by the presence of the other. 
In short: Diversity made them more beautiful.

It’s the same for our human world. How boring would it be if we were all the same. If we were all the same race. If we were all the same sexual orientation. If we were all abled in the same ways. Would we recognize the human beauty around us without that diversity?

For every one of you reading this who’s ever felt unperfect. Ever felt like you weren’t the right race, the right sexual orientation, the right gender, the right physically or mentally abled, or whatever part of you felt like it wasn’t good enough because it wasn’t what the world saw as the mountain top of perfection. Remember that your differences are what make our world beautiful. Without the valleys, we wouldn’t appreciate the mountains. And without diversity, we might miss out on all the beauty humanity has to offer.

It was a beautiful but very bumpy flight thru Lake Clark Pass on the way to Port Alsworth for a week at Tanalian Bible Camp but the Lord our God carried us through safely. He is our Salvation! #fbstoalaska #lakeclark  #lakeclarknps

Earlier last week, we packed a produce box and sent it out via floatplane to a cabin in the middle of no where. This job is pretty fun 😏 ••• .

📍Lake Clark National Park, Chinitna Bay 🏞 We did the tour with an experienced bush pilot who was also our bear guide. They were only a few meters away from us and so cute, calm and peaceful. It was an incredible experience to watch the Bears in their natural habitat. We learned a lot about their behavior, their forage, etc. from the Park Ranger. You can reach Lake Clark National Park only by plane. There are no streets, etc. in this National Park - just 2 or three lodges where you can stay overnight. I think this is really good because so the nature is protected and the Bears can live in their natural habitat. In this National Park is no bear viewing platform with lots of tourists or something like that. There are only a few bear viewing trips a day with just 5-6 people. These facts are reasons why I love it in Alaska bacause this is the true wilderness and nature. Generally, for the people in Alaska it’s very important to protect nature, animals and vegetation. It annoys me when animals are fenced just to make money with tourists. So I think I have to stop to write now 😂🙈 #alaska #lakeclarknationalpark #chinitnabay #bears #bearwatching #lakeclarknps #alaskaroadtrip #exploring #travelling #travelalaska #visitalaska #wilderness #naturalhabitat #travelling @alaskanps @alaskatravel @natural_alaska
