I was camping with my daughter and dog, we had went down by the river after dinner just prior to the sun going down. My daughter and myself were skipping rocks into the river(east side), my dog was watching for squirrels and rabbits behind us (see was looking northeast). Just after the sun went down I called the dog over to get a drink before we left, she came to the river and stopped. She started to stare across the river, and her hair started to brissle. I looked over the river and what I thought was a grizzly bear(west side of river). It was right at the bank of the river, and then it stood onto it back legs turned around and walked into the brush behind it(3 maybe 4 steps before I could not see it.) I'm not sure how big but I would guess well over 6' 6" - 7' 0" and was twice to triple the width of a person. It was across the river and upstream, about 165 yards from me.
