This beautiful golden grizzly was asleep on the edge of a bank of a fresh water creek leading to the Khutzeymateen Basin, just outside the Estuary. So, it is subject to the tide.. and the tide is going out and the grizzly is getting more above up.... great POV looking up at a grizzly ! This is the same bear that was minted by the Canadian Mint for Canada's 150th Anniversary. It represents British Columbia. It was amazing how many times this bear would go back to sleep as we got lower and lower. (In the end the mate had to get into the water and push us off the rocks of the riverbed into deeper water !! and is was cold water ! The Anniversary bear is ver 1. for those who are interested.
