HIKING -- This amazing photo of a hiker retreating to a precarious position on a steep, steep, slope to avoid a grizzly bear on Glacier National Park's Highline Trail was published in The Spokesman-Review on Aug. 2, but only in one edition.
I'm re-posting for those of you who may not have seen it.
Montana photographer Philip Granrud captured the image of a North Carolina man's close call with a grizzly bear while hiking along the trail, which has a dropoff on one side and a vertical cliff on the other.
Everything turned out fine for the hiker and the bear.
Here's a TV video interview with the photographer, including some of his other bear photos from years of cruising through Glacier Park
Here's the Missoulian story about the incident that presented the photo op above.
