The bears are out and about. Our friend,#532, has not moved on and we seem to have a bigger fellow hanging out around the top of camp. Fortunately, they are not getting into anything. The guests have done a great job of keeping their personal items put away and their is no food to be found. I am sure the bears are gorging on blackberries. I know I am. If #532 keeps hanging out around camp, the biologists will more then likely be forced to move him elsewhere. The new location will be a much healthier environment for him to make a new life. I will keep you posted. As for weather, it was a wet day yesterday. It rained most of the afternoon. Today is starting out nice and sunny. I hope it is a trend to continue.
