This morning started early. Awake at 4:30am to get dressed and go see bears at the bear walkway.

Bob, Jesse and I were on our way by 5:30am.

Janet didn’t want to get up, as she was up late into the early morning, so she sleeps late.

Just as we got there,we saw a black bear on the road, we hurried to the walkway to see him coming out of the forest.

Bob got a great picture of the bear jumping into the river that I hijacked.

In the rain we kept watching hoping more bears would come. We took pictures of fish.

We saw this grizzly while we were on our way home walking down river.

Hyder has a population of 86 people. It is really not much look at, this is what they call it.

I made baked chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy, corn, broccoli and rolls for dinner. We ate our dinner then got ready to go back to Bear River to watch for bears. We were not disappointed.

As the Mama bear continued to traveled the river banks the cub got left behind. I could hear it calling for it’s Mom. The cub climbed a tree until Mom came back for it.

Momma seems more interested in eat the greenery then catching salmon.

Yay! The guys got Hyderized! Awesome! Looks like you had a great showing with the bears. Fun! One evening we watched a male grizzly insisting on courting this uninterested female grizzly. He was very persistent! She wanted nothing to do with him. Very funny. We sure are enjoying your blog. Makes me wanna go back! Have a safe trip back.
