Brown bears, like these ones seen near Silver Salmon Creek, will often practice "dash and grab" fishing, in which they quickly pounce on fish in shallow water. Because this technique uses so much energy, it is most often seen with younger bears and earlier in salmon runs. NPS Photo/K. Jalone #findyourpark #alaska #bears #bearsofinstagram

From the archives: a throwback to the 1990 Redoubt eruption. Redoubt #Volcano has erupted twice in the last 30 years. It first erupted for over 6 months from December 1989 into 1990. Then again in 2009, sending ash to the Kenai Peninsula and Anchorage.
