Images from Lake Clark National Park, Alaska

Lake Clark National Park in Alaska is one of my favorite places in the world. Situated on the Alaskan Peninsula with no road-access, the only way to reach this wilderness mecca is via bush-plane or boat. Here are some images of the Coastal Brown Bears that call this place home that I’ve taken over the last few years. You can photograph these beautiful bruins with us on our long awaited first “Lodge-Based” photography trip to Lake Clark National Park. Interested in learning more? Read our recent announcement about the Lake Clark Brown Bear trip or see the trip page Brown Bears of Alaska – Lake Clark National Park. It’s going to be a blast! As of the time of this post there are five spots left for 2019!
