at first i thought the left image, at your link cam, was a TV. it actually looks identical to our family TV as a kid growing up. it sort of looks like a station dial too!
it's nice to see a cam like this on other rivers to compare to the salmon runs in alaska. i've seen reports that the world's salmon runs worldwide are dropping which pretty much means these bears and others won't have much of a future. even for me, it doesn't hit home until you actually see it live. a TV documentary is good but seeing it live... "what are these bears going to do if there's no salmon to eat?" what are the fisherpersons going to do?
in 1984, arbach took us on a trip to the Eel River California. there was snow on the ground near the banks, so it must have been around february / march. it was a nice sunny, warm day, the flow was about 600. on our way down, lot's of big salmon were running up stream and many had deteriorating skin. there are only a few events in my life i can remember exactly going back decades but this is one of them. it was incredible.
(and i had to jump out of my boat and defend my girlfriend against attacking bears with my paddle. or maybe it was a branch? she says it was a branch but the way i remember it it were attacking bears).
