bear sighting





these shots were taken while riding down on the gondola ride visiting Lake Louise. so it was a real chore trying to zoom the camera, not shake and get a half way good shot. it was fun. but i wanted to get an even better shot. 

now how often do you see a lady grizzly like this up close. she was such a beauty. unlike the ones you might see in the zoo, circus & suchness. the folks working there were for sure she was with cub staying so close. maybe she had other reasons? food? fun? relaxation?

What an amazing privilege, to see a creature like that in the wild! And you did better with your shots than I would have done. Unfortunately (probably) bears are extinct in the UK. I must admit, at first I thought your post was titled "Beer sighting" :-)

We saw a black bear when we were in Montana this summer, but I've never seen a grizzly. Looks pretty calm.

Possibly digging for some treat, like mushrooms. In late summer, they gorge themselves on blueberries, and fish.

That might be one reason to ride a gondola,seeing a grizzly at a safe distance. :)

How lucky for you to spot this female bear in the wild. The only one's I've ever seen have been in zoo's. We have bear in our mountains but I've not come across one and really don't want to unless it's from a safe distance.
What a sight that must have been! I find I try and try, then miss the moment.
Your photos are simply wonderful, the falls, gondola.

When we'd go up north as a child we would see bears all the time but then they closed up the dumps and we didn't see anymore bears. We'd drive to the dumps at dusk and wait for the bears to come and find food in the dumps, it's not a wonder they closed them.

That's an awesome sighting, Beth. But I'd be wanting to be up in a gondola, too, if I saw one. Ha!
Have a wonderful Friday and weekend!

Neat! I like bears but I just had a nightmare about one.

Glad you were on the gondola! Grizzlies are such beautiful, powerful creatures. It's good to live in a world where they exist.
Great experience to see this wild animal. Hope your weekend goes well.

I'm glad you were on the gondola too. This is one animal I do not want to come across on a path somewhere.
I'd love to see a bear in the wild - from a safe distance of course.

I am not sure I have ever seen a real live grizzly, let along in the wild.

Kayaking it

We really lucked out to go kayaking on this trip while we were staying at Davy Crockett State Park, TN. So you know ... I have yet to fall out of my kayak .... KNOCK ON WOOD ... knock on your head ...whatever!! My hubby this kayaking trip slipped once going into this kayak right off the bat and then the kayaking completely flipped over ...it was a real COLD adventure ...fun but so so cold. & our camping friends ...who don't go kayaking often were wanting to help the hubby but I had it under control ...I had water come up and over the kayak ... I am guessing that would be a good reason to have a skirt on your kayak. Wonder if I could do that on my kind of kayak? Not sure ...but it was so so cold. We made it back all in one piece. 
Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you did enjoy your visit. Thank you for your comments and friendship. ENJOY YOUR DAY!! Be Well & Be Blessed!! Beth ( :
