Now that the bears are all safe inside their winter dens, I continue editing the thousands of pictures I took this past year.
This past spring, Felicia, a.k.a. grizzly 863, kicked out her 2.5 year old cubs as expected.
The cubs didn't go very far, however. They stayed in the area where Felicia raised them, around the Togwotee mountain pass that is located between Grand Teton National Park and the small town of Dubois to the east, frequently in full sight of the road.
Wyoming's Game & Fish department relocated one of the two cubs about 28 miles northwest later this summer after causing safety concerns when getting close to human settlements.
Here's one of the cubs shortly after being kicked out. Getting used to live on its own for the first time.
Crossing Blackrock creek just to the east of Grand Teton National Park
Before being kicked out, both cubs were still hanging out with Felicia
