Bears, Bears, Bears

Thursday, August 13th, 2009

I don’t think that it is a secret that I am a little crazy about bears.  I love bears; teddy bears, wooden bears, Jeff Fleming bears, Boyds bears, pretty much any bear.  Tonight I went to bear heaven.  We were travelling over Logan Pass and at our second construction stop there was a flagman standing on the mountain side at 9:30 at night.  I made the comment that I would be a little worried about bears, standing there all by myself, but then thought that probably the noise of the jack hammer would probably scare away any wildlife.  We started on our way again and not even a half mile down the road we could see these tumbling little shadows crossing on the road ahead of us.  It was 3 little, black, bear cubs. They were SO CUTE!  One little guy stopped right in the middle of the road and just looked at us for almost 2 minutes.  He was only about 18 inches tall and so adorable.  The other two disappeared over the side of the cliff and one of them climbed a tree just a few feet away from us and sat and looked at us.  I was digging with one hand in the back for camera, but sadly I couldn’t get it in time, so no pictures.  We didn’t ever see the Mother bear, but somehow I don’t think she would have been too keen on me adding her little cubs to my collection.  Oh well I guess I will just have to go into the bear store tomorrow to get my bear fix.
