After Deeter’s post last week regarding the safety factor while fishing around bears, and my impending trip to Alaska at the end of the week, I have bears on the brain. That’s why when my friend sent me this link to and the live bear cam at Brooks Falls in Katmai National Park, I felt I had to share.

I’ve been checking in on the bears the past few days and it’s a pretty amazing thing to watch in real time. The info over on says, “You are watching exclusive LIVE footage from Alaska’s Brooks River in Katmai National Park. Every year over a hundred Brown Bears descend on a mile long stretch of Brooks River to feast on the largest Sockeye Salmon run in the world.”

The cameras almost always seem to be on, and there have been a few bears there every time I’ve looked. The site also has live cameras on osprey nests, Puffin Burrows, and a multitude of other really cool creature cameras.
