It’s been a Mother’s Day tradition in our family for over ten years to go to Yellowstone for the day (we live pretty close by) and we’ve always seen at least one bear. I think they come out specially for my Mom. 😀
However, yesterday’s trip was special. Why? Because we saw not one, not two, not even seven (our previous Mother’s Day record), but TEN bears! And all in a span of like an hour! They were all black bears, no grizzlies, and we also saw the usual buffalo, elk, deer, pronghorn, etc…. Oh and tourists too, we saw those a lot… 😉
Here are some pictures….hopefully you guys can zoom in on the ones that are a little further away… ❤

It was small and cute and furry, and even though I am freaked out about bears (yes, I’ve grown up in bear country, know the proper precautions, etc…but I’m still freaked out about them!) this one looked like it wouldn’t harm a fly! Anyway, I know that looks are most definitely deceiving with bears, but it was still cute and it came close to the car so I got some nice shots (camera shots, that is). Continue reading
