Alaska – the cute side of Bears

After two fairly long posts and a look at some of the more aggressive actions of the bears during our visit, I thought we should turn back to the more endearing side of these animals.  There is reason why many kids play with stuffed bears – they can be incredibly cute while just enjoying their environment.  Does it get much better than this little bear?

“is that mine”?

We almost walked right by this guy – he was well hidden in the grass and seemed to be very comfortable.

    • Rach,
      Its easy to take things for granted but these trips always re-awaken my attention to my surroundings.

  2. No wonder we love bears. I think most of us look at the cute and forget the ferocious side.

    • Judy – both sides are fascinating but when you see them in their environment, it is much more low key than you might imagine – except during mating related encounters.

    • Marina,
      There are times when they are so cute you forget that they also outweigh you by several hundred pounds and have huge claws…. 🙂
