Two Summers ago, Gloria and I spent two weeks in Yellowstone National Park. Early the first morning, we were visiting the first of many geysers and hot springs scattered throughout the park. Click on picture above and look closely at the boardwalk. Gloria just walked by fresh bear tracks.
One day the pair was rooting around in Hayden Valley. Here the mother crossed a small watery depression.
But the cub wasn't too sure he wanted to cross so he just sat for a while.
He finally decided to test it out since his mother didn't seem to be coming back.
Gotta hurry and catch up!
Here you can see the difference in size between the two.
The time I spent at Yellowstone is one of the fondest memories of my life. Watching these bears up close made it even more special. It was amazing to see many families drive into Yellowstone one day and leave the next. They missed the whole experience of America's first national park. I spent two weeks and still didn't see everything.
