Early Snowfall

An early October snowstorm left behind several feet of snow in the high country and several inches of snow on the valley floor. We found a great log of Wolf scat on the road and had a wonderful look at a female Grizzly Bear walking through the snow. We only saw the bear for about a minute, but we spent nearly 20 minutes photographing the tracks that she had left behind. There was also a nice set of Wolf tracks in the snow as well. The snow covered ground and the autumn colors made for a cool looking photo. Many of our guests are sometimes apprehensive to take huge bursts of photos, that was not the case on this bear sighting. The gentleman in the back seat held down his shutter release till his processer overloaded and then looked at his wife and said "Awesome".
