Grizzly Sow With Cubs
As of yesterday, there was a grizzly sow with two cubs in the meadow about 100-150 yards east of the road about half way between Dunraven Pass and Tower Junction. She apparently has been there fairly consistently. Park rangers are present to make sure people don't get too close (and ensure all four wheels of every parked vehicle are 100% off the road). We saw the sow and both cubs, but getting good shots takes patience. We never saw all three with heads up at the same time. Last year the bears in this area disappeared in August as the food supply was depleted, so they may not be in this area long. We also saw a black bear just north of Tower Junction.
