When I worked on the Brown Bear study in Haines, I only had one day a week off. This was rough because there were SO many incredible hikes in the area and I didn't have time to explore enough! One of the best was a trip to the Kluane National Park which is north of Haines in the Yukon. We hiked the King's Throne trail, which was rough, rocky and steep. We were entirely unprepared for snow at the top but luckily we were dressed at least a little warmly. Here I am at a cairn on way up. We encountered this Black Bear--luckily from the car--stuffing his mouth full of vegetation. It's a dark picture so click on it if you want a better view.
