As we made our way to the bear viewing area, we quickly discovered that this grizzly had other plans in mind! This grizzly came walking down the trail right towards us. We stopped, motionless. Our guides had their hand on bear spray just in case (they said afterwards that this was the closest encounter they've had). Luckily, because we respected nature, the grizzly continued down the path and crossed the stream right in front of us. When the bear was at the other side, we all let out our breath.
