Grizzly Hunt

Hello, today I am going to tell you about a special moment in my life.

In out of my 14 days of my road trip to Grand Teton National Park, this day stood out the most to me. My family and I took a road trip for 14 days to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Park. Around 7 PM in a scenery location called Willow Flats in Grand Teton National Park,  we saw a herd of elk munching on some delicious willow. My parents and I decided to wait to see what happens because we had nothing else to do. I observed the behavior of the elk’s and I noticed one thing in particular. They ran away from certain bush spots which caught my eye. I’ve also noticed that the elk was being more playful in my opinion and didn’t watch out for predators. As the sun began to set and the moon became luminous, elk calves were screaming like toddlers and were running around like they were mad. Suddenly the screaming stopped and the eerie noise of the blood-sucking musquitos made my body feel numb. 

My parents whispered, “Let’s go back to our cabin and get some sleep.”

I replied, “Five more minutes.” I glance at my phone to see the time and it was 9:40 PM. We decided to wait for those five minutes and observed what was going to happen.  Exactly at 9:45 PM, a big male grizzly popped out of one of the bushes and charged at the elk herd. Elk’s were crying, crossing roads, and ran everywhere to get away from the bear. At one point the bear got confused because all the elk split up and he didn’t know what to do. Sadly, the hunting action was over and it was too dark to see the bear going back to its den. I still can’t get over the fact that we captured a National Geographic moment. Thank you for listening to my memoir.
