Black Bear on Grinnell Glacier Trail, Glacier National Park, Montana

Not selected for Google Earth or Google Maps [?]

Hiking Grinnell Glacier Trail with my family we came across this Black Bear just below the trail eating berries.

The Black Bear color ranges from black to light blonde. Cinnamon coloured Black Bears are quite common in the western US.

Black Bears have large pointed ears. Grizzly bears ears are short and rounded. Grizzly Bears also have a shoulder hump. Black Bears do not.
