Hit a bear--rier! (barrier...as in
Tuesday, May 19, 2009
Well, this black bear (see photo in photo gallery) and his cinammon-colored bear cousin have been on both our decks, clawed & destroyed our screen door & munched grass 20' from my house. A total of 4 visits. So I'm a little leary about heading up the mtn. They've always been here..but I just haven't seen them nor have they been ON the decks and nearly eating at the table with us. And I injured my back trying to load my bike into a new vehicle...so I'm kinda grounded. Today we had 6 deer, a fox, a red-tailed hawk, marmots and chipmunks in the yard and finally green grass and baby aspen leaves. Spring is here...and that means the bears have awakened. Hmmmmm...gotta put my little jingle bells on my shoes so I don't startle them while hiking. Hope I don't run into the mountain lion, too.
