I was going to do a triplog and Photoset of a canyon we try and hit once a year. But after shooting the bear photos I won't be giving a location. We were eating our lunch while sitting on a big log and I turned to look back down the canyon to an area we've lunched before. I said oh look an elk cow, big head, long snout and as Deb turns around I go Oh Crap it's a bear. Right then it heard me and stood up and I must say it was bigger than we expected. I had opened a bag of jerky which I quickly crammed in my top shirt pocket while at the same time grabbing Tus's leash. Fortunately she was on the opposite side of the log and didn't see it. Then I saw the cub. Everything we've learned through the years was don't mess with the mama and bless little Boo Boos heart for the youngin is coming right up the canyon to see us, or get water, or jerky! Mama now is coming up the side of the canyon and staying in the undergrowth and out of sight. Boo Boo is not stopping and will eventually wind up less than 20 feet from us, which is way closer than we want mama. Then it stops looks around and then turns and heads back down the canyon. It wasn't concerned about our yelling and clapping, mama must have said something. It went back to our old lunch spot and mama pops out of the brush...Yeah! Boo Boo climbs a tree a little bit and then mama turns to leave with Boo Boo in tow. Whew! Way cool and yeah we still have to go down the canyon past them. Oh and in retrospect, putting the jerky in my top shirt pocket may not have been a good idea.
