Bear cub


Underscoring the frequency of black bears in the valley this summer was the appearance of a first-year cub. It was the second bear to come along, but it walked right up to me, while I was sitting beside the Lake, before it realized that I was there. I snapped its picture with my phone just at the moment it looked up and said to itself: oops.

    He’s a gorgeous little guy – a little scruff of old fur on his back, looks light reddish brown. Really good photo.

    We had a young guy here in early summer, 16 months old. He was not too concerned about us either, we had to make a few noises to deter him.
