  1. The same bear crossing the road the day before with lots of tourists around.

    Bear Crossing A sub-adult grizzly bear stops traffic in Yellowstone National Park's Hayden Valley by approaching the road and crossing. Throughout the months of June and July, this is a common sight in this area of the park - you rarely get one without the other. Where there is a grizzly bear in sight of the road, there are countless people to watch it.<br />

It is always fun and exciting to see a bear in the park, but when you work and live there, it can get tiresome and time consuming when stuck in a "bear jam". Often times there are people out of their vehicles too close to the animal, people parking and leaving their cars in the middle of the road and just driving like, well, not good drivers.<br />

This is a very non-typical photograph for me on JD, but it shows what a typical bear sighting really entails in Yellowstone National Park. Geotagged,Grizzly bear,Summer,United States,Ursus arctos horribilis,Yellowstone national park,bear,mammals,wyoming

The grizzly bear, also known as the silvertip bear, the grizzly, or the North American brown bear, is a subspecies of brown bear that generally lives in the uplands of western North America. This subspecies is thought to descend from Ussuri brown bears which crossed to Alaska from eastern Russia 100,000 years ago, though they did not move south until 13,000 years ago.

Except for cubs and females , grizzlies are normally solitary, active animals, but in coastal areas, the grizzly congregates.. more
