Bear Jam 2012

Grizzly 399 decided to make her first appearance of 2012 and last appearance of the 2011 bear watching season. It was a beautiful cold winter night, and the last night anyone will see of Griz 399 and her two cubs till spring. They finally decided to hibernate, nearly a month after most people thought they would. I wasn’t able to get any shots of them but I was happy I was able to watch them head to their den after months of poor timing an work keeping me from a sighting. They were looking fat and healthy, a relief to all of us who spent countless hours watching and photographing these bears. Goodnight 399. Goodnight cubs. See you in spring.
