Can you say ice?


Can you say runnels?


More rain to come in the next couple of days--it won't be nice.

Beautiful day today, tho.  We found we crossed tracks in the clouds with a bear and 2 cubs yesterday, evidently scared them on our way back from Stevens Canyon, they went down across the river and up toward the ridge above Edith Basin.

Mother bear and cub passed this way on their way to Stevens Canyon, evidently a little after we went this direction to Stevens Canyon yesterday.


Cub number 2 paralleling our ski track from yesterday.


But she and the cub turned around here when they heard us coming back from Stevens Canyon and all 3 bears headed down across the Paradise River to ridge above Edith Basin--must not have been very hungry.
