Okay, ready for the bears!!!

After searching for bears in the park, we finally realized that we could locate the grizzly bears by looking at the snow and following the footprints. These prints were a little too close for comfort, but did eventually lead to this bear!
Wowza!
Here he is sitting by a tree!
Here he is scratching his back on a tree! These are REAL photos friends and family! I was amazed!!
So, I decided to be a little artistic. I believe this photo may be included in my Christmas Cards this year! Enjoy!

Oh. Wow. That is AMAZING!!! I didn't think we had bears ANYWHERE NEAR us. I mean, I live in the city! With a pretty busy metropolitan area spreading out. But just a few weeks ago a small black bear was struck by a car right outside town. No wonder about six homes in that area were for sale!

Pam, actually my brother had his range finder with him and it estimated the bear to be about 200 yards away if I remember correctly. One was about 195 yards away. The pictures are zoomed in as close as I could get with my camera. Glad you enjoyed them!
