Late Saturday afternoonI headed out on the park road to see what I could see. When I got to Savage River some folks were watching a grizzly that was eating and playing with a carcass. This went on for quite a while, then a sow arrived with 2 cubs. She found part of the carcass and was moseying around but in about a minute she realized there was another bear in the area and took off after it. It ran up the hill and across the road. She settled in with her cubs to enjoy the carcass. After a while she left, heading for the river. As some of us waited around to see what would happen she appeared again with the cubs in tow. Eventually she went up the hill and across the road. A short while later the original grizzly came back on the scene for a few minutes then meandered off. All this took place in less than 1.5 hours while I was there. Really interesting to see it all happen.
Using nice fast wifi at the Riley Creek Mercantile while doing laundry. Will go into the minute town for a little bit to gas up the truck and pick up a couple of last minute momentos of this area.
