3 Bullets in Grizz Country

The cowboy stopped his truck and said, “you need to watch out. Make sure you don’t sleep with any food in your tent. You’re in grizz country now..”

The cowboy: note the ammo belt and rounds behind his head.

In western Wyoming, “grizz” means grizzly bear.

An ammo belt was strapped around the back of his head rest. 3 rounds were tucked in to the leather loops. 3 rounds were missing.

I have zero bullets. That night I started hanging my food in the trees.

Where to From Here

From Alpine, Wyoming, where we’re currently camped, the mules and I plan to travel through the Caribou Targhee National Forest to Bone and Atomic City, Idaho.
