Here are a few bear pictures for Molly, a young reader of my blog and
a big bear fan.
These are the 2 resident bear cubs at our town's Fortress of the Bear. You
can read about them here. Aren't they just so fuzzy and cute?
This bear showed up when the gang was fishing one evening. The fence
is around the fish hatchery and he is on the other side. He stayed for a
little bit, then wandered away. In the meantime a backpacker came out of
the woods with his fishing pole and my husband (from the boat) warned him
there was a bear in the area. He asked how long he had been gone (about an hour)
so took off the back pack and started fishing. Next thing they see is the back packer's
fishing pole on the ground and him up a tree. He's baaacckkk!
bear has taken up residence at the bird estuary this last week. If you click on the
photo to enlarge you can see 2 fuzzy brown ears in the grass where she is laying
down. These were taken from the road because the boardwalk has been closed
since she moved in.
She must have heard something because now she is getting up and you
can see one of the cubs behind her.
Uh oh. I hope you have your best running shoes on Mr. Shobe. I have
heard a mother bear with cubs compared to a freight train coming at you--
except with claws.
Fresh tracks on a beach we visited. We also found a whale carcass.
And on the same trip we found this half full can laying on the side of the trail.
Hmmm...makes you wonder where the owner of the can ended up, doesn't it?
