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.

Little Pee Dee State Park, South Carolina

Happy Labor Day!! I always wonder about this thing called Labor Day, who decided to call it that? Was everyone in labor or what? Here's what google thinks: "A public holiday or day of festivities held in honor of working people, in the US & Canada on the 1st Monday in Sept. in many other countries on May 1st".

"Little Pee Dee State Park", Dillon, South Carolina. I think this was one of the most friendliest state parks, meaning the camp hosts actually stopped by, asked us where we were from, how long we were staying & just really went out of their way to make use feel welcome and thanked us for stopping by.
I don't ever recall visiting a state park that has ever had dirt roads & I do wonder what they would be like on a rainy day? I bet they would a muddy mess. My Dad had to tell me that my 3 great aunts used to visit this state park when he was younger Mat, Meta & Min were there names. I only knew Meta, who made it till her 99 bday... sadly s…

Before we get into the good amazing pics I am going to share today ... let me talk a bit of every day life ... what has been happening with me. The hubby and I went on a trip over 2 wks ago ...to enjoy a Casita rally in Arkansas, was hoping for cooler temps. It was a real ball. Met lots of new friends and got to see some super awesome buddies. I had gone all summer not seeing in copperheads and was super happy about that ... was hoping my go for copper was going well ... well during that rally i got to see one and then came home to start my yearly fall chore of raking leaves and there was one to greet me. LUCKY ME. not!!! All good ... life goes on ... but Let me tell ya it was not fun.

How come we have not heard much about the gas leak in Alabama recently ... it did affect us while traveling home through Nashville ...scared the pooh out of me ... I was wondering if we would make it home. Apparently it will only affect southern Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama ... I might …
