Grand Teton National Park’s most famous grizzly bear — dubbed 399 by researchers — is once again roaming the roadsides around Jackson Lake in Grand Teton National Park, and again with three new cubs at her heels.

Starting in 2006, grizzly 399 raised three cubs within sight of roads in the Oxbow Bend, Willow Flats and Jackson Lake Lodge area of the park, delighting visitors and providing numerous opportunities for photographers. Researchers say 399 is about 15 years old.
