Lupe stares intently up Turbine Creek sniffing the air. Lupe's human porter didn't realize it at the time this photo was taken, but Lupe was smelling 3 grizzly bears behind the bushes directly in front of her across the creek. Moments later the situation became clear as the biggest bear lifted its head above the bushes to stare back at Lupe. Mt. Beatty is the highest peak in the background (2014-07-18).
