Took a wildlife tour that took us up the valley and out to the lake. Our guide, Pam was terrific. She was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining. We took a walk through the forest that was just breathtaking. I highly recommend visiting this beautiful place.

No bear action in April, or none when we were there. Campground wasn't open so we just drove the rode and watched our old merganser friends on the river. Lake still mostly iced over.

We did a bear watching excursion on our tour and we had a great time. They took us along the Chilkoot. The guides were great and worked hard to get us as near as possible to the bears while keeping us safe.
