Location: Grand Teton National Park, MT
I got up about 4 am on this cool spring morning with the intention of hopefully finding some good wildlife. I had not gotten close to any grizzlies in a few years, and was hoping to see one. Not even 10 minutes into the hike, I saw a young grizzly from about 20 yards away. I quickly grabbed the camera and and the bear spray and hoped that mom was not too close by.....But there she was, slowly meandering through the brush, picking at roots and insects. Then came one more cub, then another....triplets!!! I did not know this was possible, but there it was. I spent the next hour following them from a safe distance finally getting this pano as the sun rose over the valley.
