When the road is dry and the sun is out. The fog definitely helped as our route down the hill was in bucketing rain. 4000 foot drops – incredible.
When we got to the top Grant said “I guess that’s the last of the grizzlies”. We saw two large adult males in the Bella Coola valley and that was pretty impressive. However we rounded the corner and there she was. The most blasé grizzly bear I have ever seen. Definitely female, slim and smaller than the males, without the pronounced shoulder hump. We stopped- she was standing looking at us, then she lay down, put her head on her crossed paws, (honestly!) and started to pull the fresh green grass. We finally left her there content in the warm sun.
