During 2015 while in the backcountry in and around Glacier National Park, I had several documented encounters with grizzlies of the Northern Continental Divide Ecosystem (NCDE). One grizzly I came across, was not even 3 miles from the Canadian border. At some point in this bears life, it most likely crossed the border between Canada and the United States, completely un-phased and without care. In their world, a grizzly is a grizzly; they know no borders or boundaries!
