Description
Grand Teton Grizzly # 793, a.k.a. "Blondie" as she is known by the "locals", is one of the lessor known Grizzly Bears of the Grand Teton area. However, she usually shows up with her cubs for 1-2 weeks every spring in the "Pilgrim Creek" area of GTNP. This is a "Golden Hour" image taken a little after sunrise in early May of 2019. She and her cubs were grazing along the highway about 60 yards off of the road. A group of us watched and photographed her for about 30 minutes until all three finally scurried across the road and into the woods towards Jackson Lake.
