A maquette of the monument ‘On Donely Slide’ a sow grizzly with her two cubs- a family affair.

The slides came down early that spring
And glacier lilies laid in wait
Until the melting snow should wake them
From the winter’s sleep

Wild onions and celery shoots
All made a garden for the queen
Who now appears to introduce
Her offering to the world

O beautiful the hands of Him
To fashion such a life as this
To grace the place where rivers start
The air so pure and clean

I can see the morning sunlight
Dance upon the golden bear
Far above the swollen river
High on Donely Slide
