Teton Grizzly


I have said before that I love Yellowstone and the Tetons and seeing the wildlife there is awesome. During our last trip we had an awesome sighting of the Grizzly bear in the Tetons National park. We had just left the lodge after checking out some female moose and her young when we sighted the Grizzly crossing the road. We were actually able to watch it strolling along for what seemed like a good amount of time.  We were just about the only people there until maybe one other car drove into the parking lot.













Bears are my favorite critters and it was a cool experience to see this Grizzly. Thanks for stopping by my blog and to see more cute critters go and visit Misty Dawn at camera-critters

  2. Bear sightings have been up on the east coast this year. We've seen three sauntering along the road between NC and PA over the last year. Not Grizzly bears, however! Beautiful pictures.

  5. I was just thinking this moring about how I would love to see a Grizzly bear. That must have been a life experience for you. Hope you are enjoying the snow we are now getting along the mid-atlantic coast now. Happy Holiday,

  7. What amazing shots of the Grizzly!!! I would have been kind of jittery seeing him though, my boyfriend and I were quite relieved when we didn't see any while in BC a few years ago lol

    Fantastic photos of the bear! That would be an awesome experience.

  25. I may have lost my message; if this is a repeat, just delete. These are amazing photos. Animals in their natural habitat makes more sense and is far more humane!

    Mine is here
