This reminds me of Yellowstone. In the late fall Bears climb the mountain sides like shown in the picture to gorge themselves in preparation for winter on a specific moth that buries in the rocks.

BTW, great picture.

Here is a piece from my coming report covering the bear. You could be right about it feeding on moths but the Ionian Basin was still mostly snow cover:

While eating breakfast in the hut a man outside yells bear! What did he say I asked? A bear!? Up here!? I got up quickly to see a bear running at full speed up the main drainage of the pass. It then made it's way up the Eastern Flank of Mt. Solomons and continued up the slope until it crossed the ridge running South of Solomons at about 12,400 feet and not once the whole way did it stop running! Wow I said I wish I had stamina like that! Why that bear was up there and where the hell it was headed by going into Ionian Basin is beyond me.
