You’ve spent your fare share of time scouring the woods of British Columbia for fresh scat and the prints of a Grizzly but if you haven’t had much luck yet, it’s time you head out to one of the nation’s best parks for spotting bears. No more weekends watching Yogi or Smokey on Direct TV satellite – get out there and see the real thing!
Yellowstone National Park – Careful…bears here are aggressive since tourists relentlessly feed them despite the warnings. You’re likely to see a black bear and some cubs and if you’re lucky and in the right place at the right time, maybe even a grizzly.
Yosemite National Park – There’s a lot of scenery here so if you don’t see a bear you won’t be disappointed but there are tons of black bears roaming through these tall woods. Take bear spray if you go on an inland hike, though.
Glacier National Park – There are only a few months a year when this park is fully accessible and summer’s got em’ all. Get out there and use the buddy system – the park is dense and full of very wild animals.
