I am thinking two different bears


They might have gone back to the den....

  6. I just LoVe seeing this. Purely selfish (or selfful?). I sipped a wee cup of Dragonwell tea before coming home from the studio today and in the leaves I saw a bear, looking over her shoulder at a (flying) fish. So these tracks, by black or grizzly, are beautiful and resonate deeply for me. Thanks so much sharing! <3

    1. Yes, that is a super fun thing about snow. They are covered up now with a second snow storm since then.

  11. Dear Tammie - I haven’t seen bear footmarks on the snow before. These are so big. Aren’t bears extremely hungry right after hibernation? Take care and stay warm.

  17. Wow, how exciting to have wildlife like that. I trust you kept an eye out for them coming back?!!

    1. keeping an eye out is a daily occurrence once I know they are around. Snow makes it easy to see their tracks.

  18. That is surprising! They will have a hard time of it for awhile now.

  21. I hope for polar! They migrated your way in search of their distant cousins, 'cause their homes have disappeared, and they seek asylum.

    Your photos sparked excitement and wonder, and my imagination flared. Thank you. :)

  22. Wow, that is shocking! I have a hard time imagining two separate bears waking up at this time of year - so maybe they are a mama and a yearling... I sure do hope that they're okay. My understanding is that getting up and moving around at this time of year would probably mean that something bad happened at the den like a predator visit or water filling the den...

    Thanks for this amazing puzzle! Please let us know if you learn any more about this mystery.

  23. Bears! I certainly hope they find some food if they have come out of hibernation so early.
