Yellowstone Grizzly Yellowstone and Grand Tetons 2010, pt. 1

Kristen and I had the pleasure of taking a week long trip to northwestern Wyoming in September.  We’ll be featuring quite a few galleries of images from the trip, and the first is of Yellowstone grizzly.  We came across these three bear after a hike on Mount Washburn.  It’s a 4 or 5 year old mother with two yearling cubs.  They were initially down the hill from us quite away foraging plants.  They worked their way up the hill quite quickly, much to the surprise of quite a few photographers, sending everyone running back to their cars and the ranger sounding his siren.  While everyone was focused on the cubs playing on the logs, the sow had quite quickly reached the road a little two close for comfort, coming 10 – 15 yards from the parked vehicles.

    Hey guys,

    Well, it took a little digging to find you but after 15 minutes of google work….success. It was great to meet you both in Yellowstone and wow, what circumstances!!! We certainly got quite the show up there at Dunraven Pass. I never thought I’d be that close to a grizzly sow with cubs. It took some time for my heart rate to return to normal.

    Also, many thanks for the comment you left on my website. It is much appreciated. You sure got some great captures as well!!!

    All the best from North Vancouver, B.C.
