  1. Beautiful shots! I’m sure you ladies are having a wonderful time! Can’t wait to hear all about your trip!

    • Thanks, Jona. Weather has been a challenge, cold and not just rain but snow or sleet more often than we could imagine. But hopefully that is behind us. We’re both looking forward to seeing you and Gary sooner rather than later.

  2. Wondering about the wolves…Know they would go after elk but a baby grizzly? Maybe the elk knew the wolves would come after them if they ran?

  3. Hi Lynne, I’m sure the wolves weren’t interested in the cub. I’m sure mama bear was very nearby though I couldn’t see her. No idea about why the elk were not afraid but it may be as simple as the way the bear then the wolves behaved, they didn’t seem to be in a predatory state if you know what I mean. We were also speculating that maybe there was a kill on the hill that the predators were interested in. And at that point all the elk appeared to be in good condition, no obvious injured ones for the predators to be likely to go after. There were some elk calves nearby but the cows with calves didn’t get near the hill where we saw the bears then the wolves.
