August 25, 2009
It is not a very safe proposition to hike through this area alone as it is a favorite region for Grizzlies and many are seen in these meadows. We make plenty of noise crossing through willow covered stream bottoms. The views however are extraordinary such as this view of the Pinnacles to the east. We see no sign of Bears and are even speculating that at this time of year they are high up on talus slopes digging out Miller Moths which contain the highest source of protein available in the animal world. The moths are a favorite of these mighty bruins. We do find a number of fallen logs that have been ripped up by bears in their search for grubs and whatever they think they might find within these logs.
