Sheep Mountain

Click on the picture with the sheep to see them a little better; but still not very good because they were so high up on that mountain.

The Three Bears

All the grizzly bear pictures were taken with a zoom lense from inside the National Park Service concessionaire Tundra Wilderness Tour bus. The sow grizzly and its two 2-yr old cubs came down a mountainous hillside to the side of our bus and then crossed the road and down to a stream below. Was a great grizzly experience we wanted to share. One more picture - of the 3 bears as they first started to come down the hillside. They took their time, yet it took them no time at all, and they paid no attention to us in the bus (but we were told to be real quiet when they got real close).
