I thought I would be blogging by now about the new retaining wall around our front flower bed. Wrong! The project is apparently being delayed because of rainfall this week and sudden work that our former builder has required of the landscaping company.
So that means you’re going to see some more photos of bears! (As if I need much of an excuse.) The lower river platform at Brooks Camp was an ideal spot for “bear watching.” Many times, the bears didn’t wander into the water, but merely passed through on their various footpaths and man-made roads.
This one was circumventing the marshlands and briskly walking in an area with a lovely backdrop of blooming wildflowers.
Our furry friends often moseyed along a nearby gravel road that twisted its way to a forested area. We saw them coming ...
... and going.
Thanks to some perspective control and a 300 mm lens, it seems like I was actually sitting on the ground when this fella ambled along!
