Do Bears Poop in the Woods?

Yes, they do!! How do I know? Cause I saw it on my way up to Blue Lake with my family today.
I know, TMI but I just could not resist.

We had a great day hiking. It was a short easy mile in to Blue Lake in the Mt Baker National Forest. It is in the Northern section of Washington State. A 75 mile drive from my home.


Bryan, Darius (#1419) and Chelsea (#1102)

Climbing on the logs at the edge of the lake.


Chelsea (#1102) soaking up the rays and contemplating life.



Walking on logs. Can you see the blue lips. She had just finished a blueberry feast.

Throwing rocks into the lake.





This is a glacier fed lake. It is so clear and blue, you can see all the way down to the bottom. Right here where I took this picture, if you were to look down into the water, it was a sheer drop of at least 25 feet.

Mt Baker with a new coat of snow. It is not unheard of for her to get in excess of 100 inches in a winter.
Probably our last hike before the weather turns on us and we cannot get out into the mountains.

Gorgeous! We were up in Concrete for a football game yesterday morning and the mountains were beautiful in the sunlight.

I was worried the bear doo was in your yard given our bear situation around here :) Relieved it was not!
