Coming face to face with a grizzly in the wild is not what a sane person has on their todo list. I am no exception but to realize not all bears are vicious man eaters is a relief. This Alaskan grizzly was quite frightened of the group at first, running off to hide in some brush. When he realized we were harmless he decided to eat some lunch. I caught him licking his lips after stripping some berries from the bush.
