Snow diverted use from our original objective. While it poured for 72 hours in town last week, three feet fell in the highest reaches.
The critters are in full summer feeding mode.
Plan B turned to Plan C when still more snow sent us down and around the first lake, rather than up through the cliffs to the second lake.
It was ok.
Bear sign was everywhere. Two bears in the parking lot first thing, scat all over the place, tracks, rubs.
And this mom with two cubs.
