Grizzly…

We are not only privileged enough to  live in one of the most beautiful places on Earth, but to also have a variety of wildlife around.

We were fortunate enough to watch this sow grizzly with her cub for about 4 hours during one of our trips to Glacier Park this summer.  The interaction between this mama and her baby were so amazing.

Here, mama and baby were playing  and then headed to the water to cool off.

Lucky enough for the whole crew that mama and baby bear where quite a distance away and also got to enjoy the view…

Sometimes people just aren’t too bright.  I have seen what a hungry black bear has done to my sheep flock in one night which is whole ‘nother post.   But this is a big mama, G.R.I.Z.Z.L.Y, with a cub, no-less!    They are a marvelous, but oh-so powerful.
