Wildlife Bears
sign posted at Glacier National Park entrances
This bear was photographed in mid-June of 2004, before the heavy tourist season starts. It was spotted at dusk on the Going to the Sun Road along St. Mary Lake. There are bears throughout Glacier National Park, including many infamous Grizzlies. As I worked at the Two Dog Flats Grill at Rising Sun, many customers asked me where they could go to spot these creatures. Each time I felt compelled to reply in the same way, "You really don't want to go out looking for these guys. If you find one on the trail, you could be in trouble quick." Once or twice throughout the season we spotted bears from the windows of that same restaurant, or across the parking lot on the porch of the gift shop, or on the steps of the Rising Sun Motel rooms.

Often entire trails are shut down in Glacier due to heavy bear traffic. They're pleasant to see from a distance, or from the safety of your car, but please, PLEASE, don't bug 'em. And if you see one from your car, don't stay too long--Socialized bears are dead bears.
