A gentleman named Chris visited us in the rainforest, he was recently diagnosed with ALS, and figured that he’d like to see as much of the world as he could before he wouldn’t be able to anymore. I told him we could go on a mission to find the white bear, but it would be a challenge. Everywhere Chris went, he had to carry an oxygen tank on his back, and a spare, and he had just about lost the use of his left arm, except his shoulder. It took a while, but we hiked up one of our steepest river systems, and down into the canyon. He told me he had had enough and asked if we could just sit where we were. We sat down, set up our tripods (he shot on an old Nikon film camera using one hand!) and waited. It didn’t take long before a white figure peered from the bushes on the same side of the river as us. The spirit bear posed on a rock for a while before walking down into the river to catch salmon. I can’t explain to you the feeling of sharing this moment with Chris. He was well rewarded for his relentless attitude to climb that steep trail into the river.
