You've all seen this place on TV, now LIVE webcam




Katmai NP Brooks Falls - Brown Bears & Salmon live webcam.




You've all seen this on TV shows but to see it live gives me a diff feeling. I've seen 3 brown bears catch 7 large salmon in 15 min and I saw a pushing fight. I've seen them sometimes eat just a little of the salmon then toss it. Hope the younger generations see this and join the groups fighting to keep some places on the Earth off limits to the corporations and subdivisions!


The person doing this posted it's in test phase. Soon will have audio and we can control the cam from our mouses! Yipee!

I curse you people for posting this, I have a lot to do and no self control. How am I ever going to get anything done with people posting time wasting temptations like this, humorous thread revisit's and debating the role of the impact of poverty rafters within the overall economy...

EDIT: i just saw a touring kayak paddle by!

in case you guys didn't notice, there is another cam at the lake mouth. there are bears all over the place! there is a USFS Ranger (i guess) manning this cam too so if you don't see movement check back in minutes.

these bears are, i guess, not dominate alpha males because catching salmon in a wide stream has got to be difficult. i would guess Brooks Falls bears are the strongest the mountains have to offer! i wish the USFS had chat system built into the video feed like so many live cams now have. then we could ask the Rangers questions. the Rangers are doing a pretty good job, in my opinion. just a few weeks and 7 million views at Brooks and this newer cam at the mouth has 3 million (but this cam is shaking, maybe from wind?

i've got to get back to work or the boss is going to fire me LOL! don't tell arbach i've been watching the cam since 8am!

I'm working on my hex... a boat ramp cam so you're drawn in gawking at the drama...no dice yet though, enjoy your freedom while you have it.
