Piper and I had some excitement on one of our morning walks when she caught wind of a Bear in the bushes. She alerted me and then hid behind me.. barking her support. The Bear didn't seem too interested in us, rather more interested in whatever it was eating. He was good size, looked healthy, especially for this time of year and I assume he because I saw no sign of cubs. I didn't manage to get any good pictures, the best being a muddy track... bummer.
The weather was mostly rainy. We had one night of frost. The surrounding peaks were dusted with snow. Kirby Creek was flowing higher than we've ever seen it. The cabin stayed nice and warm all night without using the heat. We ate well. Relaxed. Can't wait to get back!
