My Best Shot

My husband, Carl, and I live in Baltimore County. Last July, we were lucky enough to enjoy a vacation to Alaska. While there, we spent three days in remote Katmai National Park, where we were able to observe grizzly bears in their natural habitat. With careful planning, we were there during the peak salmon run at Brooks Falls where we captured some of our favorite Alaskan memories. This was our best shot.
