Wyoming rolled out their most impressive goodbye party on the final day of our remarkable Go Ahead National Parks tour. Meet Willow, an adult grizzly female, and her juvenile cub, post-lunch. During our free morning in Grand Teton, I was out photographing bison at Mormon Row when a photographer dropped a tip that a pair of bears were sitting on a moose kill a few miles away.
By the time I arrived, Willow had returned to her cub after chasing a sub-adult male brown bear off of her meal. There were more than 50 other folks waiting by the side of the road, just hoping to catch a glimpse of these magnificent animals.
This was a tremendous sendoff from one of the most beautiful places in the country – and the perfect ending to the perfect Go Ahead tour.
