Here come the blackberries... and more bears. The berries are getting ripe and the bears can smell them. I startled a bear in the a blackberry bush and he in return startled me. We have had more bear activity over the past few days. The little guys are looking for food and they are all over the mountain. The weather has been great. Yesterdays high was 72. Time to go blackberry pickin'. Maybe this is a good time to wear a bear bell?
