A family of grizzlies enjoys a day at the lake, and hikers enjoy the spectacular view!
In Montana’s beautiful Glacier National Park, hikers spot a grizzly bear and her two cubs. High above the waters, a Climate Ride participant captures the action. Grizzly bears are known to be fierce apex predators, but they also have a playful side.
Would these grizzlies act any differently if they were aware of human presence? Maybe, although it appears the situation is more like a happy day at the water park than an embarrassing encounter during bath time!
Thanks to modern technology, we’re able to get a glimpse of nature’s most powerful creatures in their natural habitat. Many years ago, settlers and explorers could only write about their discoveries (if they were able to read and write, that is). Nowadays, we can watch grizzly bears bathe in a glacial lake, and it’s like we’re right there. Pretty amazing, huh?
It looks like these hikers were smart enough to stay a safe distance, away from the family of bears. A camera with a zoom lens seems like a preferable alternative to getting mauled by an angry grizzly bear. After all, sometimes it’s just better to admire from afar!
