Bears Emerge In Nationl Parks

The warmer weather is not only melting ice from area roads and walkways, it is waking up some of the hibernating wildlife now as well – most notably bears.  There have been reports now of bear activity in Grand Teton National Park, the Gros Ventre Wilderness, and Yellowstone.  Yellowstone Spokesman Al Nash says members of park staff have reported bear sightings as well as footprints indicating bears are starting to emerge from their dens.  Nash says as the bears awaken, they will be…..well, as hungry as bears; and they will look to easy food sources like carrion.  Nash obviously urges park visitors to avoid any proximity to winter-kill carcasses and to be very vigilant for nearby bears. Furthermore, Nash says if you are planning any outdoor activity in the Greater Yellowstone Region, be sure to carry bear spray.

  • Test new gear before you buy it - October 29, 2014
    Don’t just buy your gear because it looks good. Buy it only if it fits you properly. Hiking boots that don’t fit you well will give you blisters, and you’ll spend your entire trip sitting around in camp, dreading the walk back out. A backpack that isn’t the right size or shape for your back […]
