DIGITAL BEARS: A new video initiative is bringing the famed brown bears of Alaska's Katmai National Park directly to your computer or smartphone.

THE DETAILS: Starting Tuesday, a live Web stream will allow the public to see the brown bears in their natural habitat.

MAKING IT ACCESSIBLE: The cameras provide access to a national park that is difficult to reach and expensive for most tourists. It is about 275 miles southwest of Anchorage, but no roads lead to Katmai. A trip there involves multiple airplanes and a lot of advanced planning.
