This July I didn't even take my camera or lens. First time in the last 10 years.
I did take the 10x30 Canon Binoculars with IS. The IS on Canon's binoculars are great, it makes it easy to hand hold. If I had a recommendation it would be considering getting a good pair. Most of Lamar you will well out of reach of your 600mm for a decent picture but very view able with your binoculars. I spotted a grizzly and two cubs this year and watched them for some time, according to Google Earth they were a bit over a mile away. It is not uncommon to see the wolves working the river a 1/4 to 1/2 mile away. They are fun to watch if you catch them out.
