Before moving to Wyoming about 2 years ago, I purchased my new 2008 Subaru Outback. It is near mandatory for living here in the Tetons! Around here, we don’t ask what you drive, but what color is your Subaru. While out exploring a backcountry road last fall, I stopped to give Bruce and Kirah a break. They were snuffling about, when I looked down the road to see a grizzly strolling towards us. Before panicking, I used our well-known command to “load up” and without pause they hopped into the back of the car, safe and sound. We then took the time to enjoy the visit from one of our wild neighbors from the security of “Big Brown” as my Outback is known.
