This is the 15th and last installment of my photographic trip to the wilds of Alaska. Iâ€™m now in my final day in Katmai National Park, home for over 2,000 brown bears. I have made this trip to finally see and photograph the brown bears, and along the way got to see an amazing assortment of wildlife and scenic beauty. This was indeed, the trip of a lifetime.
