Sow and Cubs
Meet Jerry from North Dakota. He has a spotting scope and lets everyone look through it!
These are the same bears TR saw on Mother's Day except they were about 400 yards away from me so my pictures are just specs! Watching them through the scope was so much fun! In the words of another guy with a scope, those cubs are "just full of piss and vinegar!" They all look so healthy and the babies were discovering so many things out there like bleached bison ribs. They chased each other around and around forever and climbed the same tree. The sow can turn over a huge stump or log without hardly lifting a single claw--so powerful. It was a JOYFUL experience to witness these bears being bears. I spent about 45 minutes with them.
