Weekly Photo Challenge: On the Way

Two weeks ago I had a great experience “On the Way.”   As I was leaving Yellowstone and beginning my journey back home to San Diego.  I was driving through the Grand Teton National Park in the evening before a planned stopover in Jackson, Wyoming.  I saw a couple of gravel/dirt roads that looked like they needed exploring so I took some time out from my transit to see if I could find some wildlife.  At my first stop, I found some Marmots that I posted a photo of earlier this week.  On a second dirt road, I went into the woods as far as I could before running into a large “pond” in the middle of the road.  Not having a four wheel drive, I turned around and went back the way I came in.  I wasn’t expecting to see anything as I had been on the road only 5 minutes before.  As I came around a corner, I saw this nice surprise – A grizzly sow with cubs.

They were also “on their way” so I didn’t have long with them but I did get a few quick shots.  Here is a view of the cubs as they were leaving – I love that the one cub kept looking back to see what I was doing.  This “on the way” interlude made both of our journeys very memorable!

  2. Nice surprise, but I wouldn’t want to get in between the cubs and their mom!

    • Cardinal – She was a little skittish but didn’t give any of the normal bear “signs” of being upset….
