Black Bear in the Tetons

October 03, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Since it was 26 degrees again this morning we had a slow start.  Our hose froze and it looked very cold and windy outside.  I sat in the car as the defrost melted the frost on the windows and took photos of snow flakes.  We left after sunrise to drive along Moose-Wilson Rd in hopes to see a bear.  We stopped and wandered around the waterfall area, gazed at some of the yellow colors left on the trees, watched a female moose walk along the river near the beaver dam (photo at the end of this post), and then we saw a young black bear!  David always picks a great place to go each day.  We have not been disappointed with our wildlife viewing.  We didn't really think we would see a bear, just hoped to see one.  It was near the road up in a tree eating berries.  The ranger said he was about two years old.  What a treat to watch a Black Bear from such a very close distance.  We are having such a wonderful time in the Tetons we have decided to stay through Monday morning.  We liked Yellowstone, but there were so many people.  The Grand Tetons are a welcome surprise and instead of just a day trip here we will be staying eight nights.
