Grizzly bear 399 and her four yearling cubs were seen for the first time this year on April 15 in Grand Teton National Park. Under the watchful eyes of a park ranger and dozens of wildlife watchers, the 25-year-old sow led her cubs on an hour-and-a-half walk visible from road corridors before disappearing from view until later that day.
Ryan Dorgan joined the staff as a photographer in 2016. He previously covered the state of Wyoming for the Casper Star-Tribune and worked at newspapers in Vermont and his home state of Indiana. He and his wife live in Kelly with their dog, Dottie.
