Early Bird Gets the…um Grizzly

A typical conversation about me usually gains a response something like this, “Oh, you’re a morning person.”  Followed by either a shaking head, rolling eyes or both.  What can I say?  I love morning light.  I think it is the best light of the day to shoot in and the critters are the most active then.  So my day begins at least by 6:00 AM and I’m generally done shooting by 9:30 AM.

Sometimes that isn’t early enough.  This big grizzly bear had already been down to the river for his morning drink, crossed over the road I was on and was walking away from the road when I got there just before 7:00 AM.

Of course being away from my camper so early has proven to have its disadvantages too.  While I was away, the morning I saw this grizzly bear, someone stole the flagpole from the front of my camper.  Seriously, you didn’t have to steal it.  If you needed it that badly, I would have given it to you.

    Fish Bridge, I stayed at Bridge Bay. I saw grizzlies everyday and have I got an “I’m an idiot,” story for you. Saw wolves, pronghorn, bighorn, bison, mule deer, eagles golden and bald. You get the picture.
