Mike,
This looks like a sow and cub I shot in the Many Glacier area this fall.
Do you have any side pictures of her? Blonde streak runs down behind her shoulders?
I post a couple pics this evening.
Great shot!

If you don't mind me asking, where was this shot taken? I have heard of grizzlies searching for insects in the cliffs, but always wondered where that was.

About 99% sure that shot was taken in Glacier National Park about a hundred yards to the east of the Drive way to the Many glacier hotel. In the many Glacier area of the park. Its not my work so I cant say for SURE but I am nearly positive thats where it came from based on some shots the OP has posted else where

Thanks! I'm familiar with the Many Glacier area (was just there this summer), but didn't recall seeing talus like that there. Like I mentioned, I have read where grizzlies will move to higher elevations in the summer to feed on moths of the army cutworm, but never really knew where. I've been trying to find locations in the greater Yellowstone area where that is common, but so far have not been successful. Hopefully, someone will chime in on where in the GYA this type of high altitude talus is common.

I would not call 50 feet above Many Glacier Road High altitude. You see bears right from the wide turn out just to the east of the hotel nearly every day by looking north and North west, and sometimes around on the W side of that rock out crop on the other side of the Hotel drive. Especially a little latter in the season, think late Sep. Oct. I live on the west side of GNP and when I am not out east working I try to get over to many glacier at least every other week sadly I have been gone working A LOT lately.

Thanks for the info. I wasn't very clear. I didn't mean that the hotel at Many Glacier was high altitude. I was speaking of the greater Yellowstone area where I have read that grizzlies move to a higher elevation in the summer to feed on moths and escape the heat in the valleys. I do envy you though. Must be wonderful to live so close to such an incredible park.
