We were hiking Grinnell Glacier when two younger people ran past us

back up the hill. Over their shoulders they yelled, "Bears!" and kept running. Dh and I had hiking sticks, bear bells, bear spray (primed and ready ;) and believed we could tell the difference between a black and grizzly bear. Then we looked at each other and knew that we would not be able to outrun the younger folks - we would certainly be attacked if angry grizzly bears appeared around the bend. Fortunately, the pack of 3 were black bears. When they saw Dh and I all puffed up, waving our walking poles and shaking our bells, they decided to move off the path away from us and down the hill. Not cute at all! Colleen
