A curious grizzly bear on the trails of Yellowstone National Park.

While hiking the trails at Yellowstone National Park, I would never have thought that I would see a grizzly bear up close. The massive animal is known to be aggressive and dangerous, however seeing one in person showed me how beautiful yet strong they truly are. Grizzly bears are enormous animals that are feared by many and seen as a threat. However, during my encounter, I realized that they are truly misunderstood creatures. The bear was curious about our presence but kept wandering peacefully through the forest. Watching it, I felt truly connected with nature and cherished my experience with the incredible animal.
