Fall colors along the Cottonwood trail

During 5 days in the second half of September, we stepped into a world of yellow and orange as we hiked along the Cottonwood Trail in Kluane National Park. The snow was covering all the mountain around us creating a very unique atmosphere of fall and winter mixed together! We saw a total of four grizzly bears feasting on berries in the high valleys of Kluane. Always at a good distance, we were able to observe them in their natural habitat for hours!
