Actually there is a lot of Bear Tension in the parks! Just two weeks ago a mama grizzly had eaten a hiker and buried the other half for later news. She was euthanized and her cubs taken to Ohio zoo.
There were 4 drivers. The 2 girls and us. It is tedious but best way of spending time with family and catching up with kids.

That's a lot of driving but it sounds like a great adventure! I'm envious of you because I've never been to Yellowstone nor seen a wild bear (not even in Alaska).
