Bear Tracks on Teton Pass

It’s barely December and it’s been more than two months since the first snow of this winter flew. I didn’t expect to skin past meandering bear tracks on Teton Pass this late in the year, but I suppose it’s still early season.

The conventional wisdom is the bears are hanging around for a few extra weeks looking for a free elk gut pile left from hunters, or some other delicacy such as a few Backcountry skiers before turning in for the winter.
