I saw my first bear last week.  They are awake!

Barry was housesitting at Len and Hildurs, he got there one night to feed the dogs and there was a momma with 2 tiny cubs up a tree.  Bernie couldn’t get at them, he was fenced in but he was close enough that she wasn’t coming down.  He put Bernie inside, searched high and low for a camera then watched them a long time.  He only got one good shot and I’m not allowed to post it since it might be a painting one day.  Sooooooo cute!  Little gaffers.
