Yesterday afternoon, Casper and Caroline, our visitors from Holland, arrived. After they unpacked their luggage, and had some free time, Skye and I took them on a walk on our trail. When we got to an area with a lot of waist-high brush we heard a noise and this tiny bear cub scampered up a tree. There was a 2nd cub in a neighboring tree, which I didn’t get a photo of.
Seeing a small bear cub out in the woods is a scary thing when you realize that the mother is somewhere close at hand. Mothers who think there might be some danger to their cubs can attack, so we didn’t spend much time observing the cubs, we continued on our way so the family could enjoy the privacy they needed.
