The excitement for the day included another bear sighting in camp. The little guy was a juvenile. He, unfortunately, had an ear tag. This means he is a repeat offender. I hope he was just passing through and decided he did not like it around here. If he continues to come around, the park service will probably have to relocate him.
Remember folks, the upper lot at the Alum Cave trail head is closed until the 13th of September. The lower lot, around the bathroom, is still open. Just remember, this weekend it will be packed. You may want to choose another trail leading to the lodge.
