This Sockeye Salmon has traveled 1000s of miles over the course of its 3-4 year life. It swam from the Pacific, up the Cook Inlet, past Homer, and into a series of lakes and streams until it found Wolverine Creek, a 1/2-mile, rugged upstream journey until it reached Wolverine Lake to spawn. This 3-4 year old Grizzly (Brown) Bear intercepted its long journey just short of the final destination. And so it goes in the wild...nature is a powerful and unforgiving thing.
