I had a great morning, alone in the woods, enjoying the fresh air, the quiet, the view, taking photos - and no bugs!

To put the cherry on the top of my day, I saw a black bear with two adolescent cubs, one black, one cinnamon, on my way through Kootenay National Park! Made me realize how much I miss the front-country bears that we had around our Sea To Sky homes - not something that we experience here in the Columbia Valley.
To view the whole collection of photos from the Kootenay Krusher, go here, and to see more photos of the bear, go here. (Sorry, no photos of the cubs - they were too busy, heads-down, grazing on a sumptuous spread of delicious dandelions!)
