I took this picture last weekend of a Grizzly. The bear was about 100 yards off of the highway.

Nice shot Mike of a difficult subject. You have to be lucky just to see one and even luckier to be in position to take a shot.

Thanks Killdeer,

Got lucky that day. Have seen grizzly's a few times in Yellowstone but never had a camera handy. Never could get him/her to look up at me. There were quite a few people watching him and he just ignored everyone. Was sure glad a tourist didn't decide to climb down the hill for a closer look!!

Decided to start carrying a camera on all trips around the state so was ready this time. Actually, this is a good time of the year to see them as they are totally preoccupied with feeding and getting ready for hibernation.

Great picture have you gone on up to Thermopolis on the drive where they have the buffalo roaming yea I know here on the out skirts of Yellowstone as well is full of them.. another place would be the Wind River in a canyon going west is a nice place to get a bunch of fish jumping back in the hole and then the way the water runs down into the cavern... told ya I lived there oh and dont forget right now in MtVeiw with the colors of the Aspens changing though that starts in Aug so the trees should be almost bare

Hi Again Sharpshot Gal,
Yes I have been to all of the places you mention as I have lived in Wyoming for over 40 years and travel the state.
We have just had our first major snowstorm of the season on this side of the state--Casper, so it has really taken a lot of the leaves off of the trees.
Colors don't seem as good this year as they did last year.

Did you have any fall or did you go from end of summer to winter?

Hi Bynx,
It sure seems like we ran right past fall to winter!! Am sure we will return to fall like weather but this storm sure took out the fall colors in the trees.
Was 12 degrees here this morning and supposed to be about that cold Sunday morning.

Mike,

You are one lucky man. Never saw a bear. Tried all I could to get some more detail. Hope you like
