What a great experience! Only 100 yards away on the other bank of the Yellowstone River.
We just came from Mud Volcano and wanted to drive along the banks of Yellowstone River a little bit, when suddenly an SUV stopped us on the way and the passengers ran down to the river bank. My son immediately shouted,»A grizzly!« and I turned our car around at the next opportunity. The bear was drawn to the north on the river bank and sometimes in the river. As we later learned from a ranger, there was a bison carcass north of the Mud Volcano. No wonder the grizzly bear didn’t notice us humans.
