All three cubs are now awake and the tide is starting to rise. The mother grizzly bear starts up the beach to the mouth of the river and the flat land estuary, which provides for protection in the taller grass. The river estuary also has easier access to the surrounding forest with its tall trees if the cubs need to escape a large male bear. Yes grizzly cubs can climb trees while the large males cannot.
Did you ever feel that you were under the watchful eye of a grizzly bear? This bear was directly below the viewing stands as you can see the reflection of the stand’s posts and cross pieces in the water. The grizzlies tend to ignore our presence in the stands but every once in a while they do glance our way and that creates a special moment especially when captured in a photo.
