Mom Bear in Grand Teton National Park

I live close to GTNP as some of you may know from my posts about spending days on Jackson Lake on our boat. Every time I enter the park boundary I am on the lookout for something amazing to see and am rarely disappointed.

Over Memorial Weekend we were at a fundraiser for the local hospital foundation. Known as the "Spring Fling", the evening was hosted at the Jackson Lake Lodge. That event was lovely with great company at our table for dinner. But it can't compare with what we got to see on our way home from the lodge.

The pictures here are of one of the famous roadside mom grizzly bears. I am pretty sure this is the one known as 399. If you google her you can find out lots about her history. We sat in the pickup and watched her for awhile with her two cubs.

Of course there was a traffic jam with others stopping like we did. There were also a lot of professional photographers with lenses as long as your arm so they can get shots worth selling. My own pictures were taken with a point and shoot and no tripod and zoomed as much as I was able. Not the best but I do get to have a reminder that once again something amazing happened on a visit to Grand Teton National Park.

Back with more again soon. Take care and stay cozy!
