Immature Woolly Mammoth tusk retrieved from the river in the background. In the same river a young Toklat Grizzly bear charged straight towards me as I was searching the gravel for fossils. I had no time to react as this bear came out of the bush in a run. He grabbed a salmon twenty feet away from where I was standing and raced with it down the gravel bar, turned back and ran towards me again all the while ignoring me. Just as he turned to return to the bush he paused long enough to look at me and disappeared. Shortly after I discovered the tusk and pulled my camera out for this photo.
