Hiking and Bears....

On days off work, nothing beats hiking the mountains!

It's as peaceful as it will ever get, and with the warm year we're having in the southern part of Pennsylvania, the hiking is even better.

I hike once a week on average and I realize not everyone is "into" this kind of activity, but bear (no pun intended) with me a moment and you will see the value in it.

I've been "tracking" a mother Black Bear and her cubs since last Spring and have found them to be a bit territorial. Often, Bear will wander whereever the best food is, so this tells me the menu around here must be to her liking. She has managed to raise the two cubs in about a 20 square mile range.
I never knew where the den was and have been hoping to find it. Last week, I believe I have. I have it narrowed down to a 100 square foot area and it looks perfect.

Whether she's hibernating deep, or is waking to feed with the warmer than usual climate is still a mystery to me. Tracks have been unchanged.
I just know that watching and waiting to see her and the lil' ones in their own environment, undisturbed will be classic.

I bring a digital when I hike and will try and get close enough to get some good shots. To see them undisturbed will be well worth all the waiting. PLUS, the peace and quiet is an additional bonus!

I don't recommend following a mother bear with her wee ones to anyone and IF you are fortunate enough to be on the trail of one, keep your distance and NEVER get near the cubs for ANY reason! (That is unless ya like to snack on claws!) Momma WILL hurt ya!

A female friend and I had a picnic in this area last year...ate fried chicken, sipped wine on a warm summer evening and made love under the stars for hours! Who knows, maybe momma Bear was watching us that day!

Have fun all....

I haven't done hiking in years, and yeah, I kinda miss it.

Hiya Straddle.....
I'd be lost without my beloved woods in the mountains to hike in!
(Doesn't hurt that I was a Sargeant in the Marines and did it for a living for many years!)
Thanks for visiting and take a hike my friend (pun intended!)
