I think it is very hard to tell but I always heard if the butt is higher than the shoulders, it's a black bear. I'm just happy to see one.

I still think this is a grizzly bear. I have seen countless black bears, and none were this color or size. Well, the butt seems higher than the shoulders, but she is walking with her nose to the ground sniffing. Anyway, who knows!

Grizzlies in the Salish Range are supposedly a rarity but you know how that goes. Because of the way she is facing it is hard to tell for sure. The color is similar to another black bear in Steve's gallery and isn't all that uncommon in black bears. I have wanted to get back over to that area to see if we could see how her cubs have grown in a year. We saw one other black bear on the same mountain and too many piles of bear poop to count so it is a great area.
