|Fising for a lens cap:)|
Tim lost his lens cap in the stream so there was a "fishing expedition" as well. Successful!
Sarah said early morning was also a good time to see bears so I headed out to the glacier early this morning (Saturday) to see if I had better luck. There were already a couple of people out - and Tim showed up a few minutes later. After a short while, we saw a bear! This one is about four years old and has a blue tag in its ear. It was tagged as a cub - its mother was a "garbage dump" bear. This one and its sibling were tagged and relocated.
|Bear Sighting!! Notice the blue tag in its ear.|
|Scratching its head!!|
After this excitement, I decided it was time for me to head back home. Guess who I saw on the way?
|Same bear!!! I saw the blue tag.|
Same bear walking across an open field and I stopped the car to take a picture - I saw the blue tag so knew it was the same bear. They really move fast as I saw this morning.
I'll put up a couple more pictures:):) This all happened before 8:00 a.m. this morning!!! Wonder what is in store for the rest of the day???

This is new this year.
