Bear Cave Mountain eco-adventures is located a few hundred yards from the Arctic Circle. As you approach you'll notice the trees here are three times taller than the surrounding forest. The forest resembles a coastal temperate zone, due to nitrogen that finds it's way from the dead salmon into the surrounding ecosystem. The salmon literally feed the entire ecosystem; trees, moss, birds, bears, and wolves. The trees are in a very real sense, "Salmon Trees."
