I promise I'll be over my bear obsession soon (we'll see how true that is), but there were so many fun shots I wanted to share with you. Hopefully you're not sick of them yet. This photo was taken about 20 minutes after this adventurous bear got too close to the marina (it actually got on top of the docks at one point) and ended up getting sprayed in the face with bear spray. The bear was in pretty high levels of discomfort for about 10 minutes, foaming from the mouth and unable to open it's eyes for very long, but it soon recovered and was back to it's exploration of the lake shore. I assume it's searching for food in order to pack on a few extra pounds before hibernating for the upcoming winter.
"Bears rose to the top of the food chain solely so they could dedicate half their lives to sleep. It’s the world’s most intimidating power nap."
