Roadtrip, Part 3

While still in the middle of Nowhere, Utah, we heard the only signs of enthusiastic life from The Teen as he exclaimed:

"I see a BEAR! It's a black bear! Down by the river!"

So Big Dude pulled off the highway to have a look-see for himself. Big Dude appreciates any opportunity to see a bear. I guess bear sightings in the wild are kinda a rare thing.

The Teen directed us (he was the only one seeing snippets of the bear down by the river), finally pointing, "THERE!"

Of course, I snapped a picture of the momentous occasion:

Littlest Dude recorded the momentous occasion in his journal of important vacation snippets:

[Very big grin] From then on, we saw lots of B'Cows on our trip ...

That's awesome!! We were in Glacier National Park this weekend and we were looking for bears, too. I thought we never saw one but apparently we saw herds and herds of them. ;)

That is too funny! I'm sure they'll be talking about this vacation story for many years to come. :)
