So much fun to happen across a pair of Black Bears on this particular morning (June 24) in Jasper National Park. They were walking through some pretty thick brush together when, in a relatively open spot, the one in the lead laid down and rolled on its back looking right at the other. I love being able to see its footprint!
I don’t know enough about bears to speak with any authority, but I do suspect it was a bit of foreplay because as they disappeared into the forest, one was clearly trying to jump on the other as it walked. 😉
Our trip to the Canadian Rockies allowed us to see quite a few of these cool creatures – a total of 10 across the three parks of Jasper, Banff and Glacier. By far though, the best opportunities and pictures came from Jasper.
