It's 11:57 PM. My foster sister just ran into my room and interrupted House of Cards to drag me into the garage. Original and edited-for-clarity pictures of the beastie dragging recycling across the yard taken from my iPhone in low light. Pretty sure this is the same bear I saw dodging on the nearby highway this evening whilst riding the metro.

Bears will eat anything. They're not shy either. I've posted about one at a Legion game here, and they also get on top of buildings and walk into bars downtown. Tourists asking me about them always make me think of that passage from Dear Mr. Henshaw where the kid talks about the stupid tourist feeding a bear a cupcake.

Including things that make them belch.  Bears repeating.

every morning I wake up and say "why, god? why am I fond of these people?"

Hmm, one of my friends in college said he woke up, looked in the mirror and said "damn, why'd God have to make me so beautiful!"

 

One of you is doing it right :)

I took this shot out of my truck window last week near Banff.   There were people idiots out of their cars standing within 20 feet of this dude trying to get a good photo.

Reminds me of the time when they thought Mt. St. Helens might erupt again. People drove up there for a better view.

I'm coming up to Waterton in about 6 weeks. Was planning to go to Banff, but too much to do in too little time.

Last year I was in the Tetons and there was a herd of bison crossing the highway. A bunch of morons got out of their vehicles to take pictures WAYYYY too close.

Waterton's nice and enough to do there without worrying about the 3+ hour drive to Banff.  Windy though.  

I have a picture of a buffalo licking my truck bumper in Yellowstone - there was nfw I was getting out of my truck to, again, join the morons who were standing on the street taking photos of the herd.

My county is well known for bears and in particular the facility where my wife works. Here are some cool bear pics she has sent me over the years. They go on lock-down about once a month when a bear gets too close to her building. This spring she had bear paw prints in the pollen on her car Amazingly, I have never seen a wild bear in our county I've seen dead ones hit by cars, I've seen prints, I've seen scat and I've seen them in the back of friends trucks. 

I cant find the picture immediately, but she had one come right up to her office window and press it's nose to the window.
