Mama bear and three cubs

Need I say more?!

We saw these bears one day as we were heading out of our boondocking spot on Taylor Fork Rd not too far from West Yellowstone.

They were extremely close to us, but luckily we were in the car!

On another occasion, J was walking Avery and a local guy pulled over next to her in his truck. With chew in his mouth he mumbled, "You do know that grizzlies are EVERYWHERE, don't you?" She did have her bear spray with her but suddenly felt very vulnerable! We didn't do anymore hikes or walks around there!
