Grizzly bear. You can see the differences between a grizzly and a black bear here, the most noticeable being the tan colour but that alone doesn’t mean its a grizzly. The shoulder hump and flat fronted face are the most common differences, as well as the tracks. Their tracks are generally identified by the long claw marking, black bears have a short claw. Also the toes are closer together than the black bears. Here is a good link on identifying the differences.
