In our visits to Yellowstone, we've rarely seen Grizzly Bears, and when we have, it's always been at binocular or spotting scope distance. In the summer of 2007, we were driving up the side of Mount Washburn when we spotted this mother bear and two cubs, foraging on the hillside, flipping over boulders and rocks and digging in the dirt.
Not the sharpest or greatest shot in the world, but certainly an experience I'll never forget, watching her and her cubs for half an hour. The fun ended when some bozos decided to try and get closer to her by circling up above her and looking down over the ridge at her.
The last we saw of her and her cubs? When she saw those brilliant folks up on the ridge, and starting roaring uphill after them.
