The paparazzi scene is a bit off-putting.

My wife and I encountered a similar situation back around 1993. I was fishing the Yellowstone River not too far below the lake when my wife came up behind me trying to get my attention. I thought it was because my backcast was getting too close to the road. "No", she said "there 's a grizzly over there". I looked across the river and there was a grizzly bear trying to catch an elk carcass that was lodged in a tree near the bank.

We just returned from Grand Teton National Park. We visited with several people in the campground who had traveled to Yellowstone to see the grizzly protecting the elk carcass. It's near the road and anyone who drives by can view it.

Drove by on Saturday. The crowd and traffic was insane. I didn't even bother to try and park. Here's a shot from the truck while sitting in traffic waiting to move.
