Not a Polar Bear

With the snow this week, I was thinking that maybe this will be the final event that pushes the remaining grizzly bears to give up and go den up in the mountains and try to put this miserable fishless fall behind them.

Today though it didn't take long to find the tracks of a bear wandering along the river likely patrolling for something of interest.  Unfortunately when you are a bear and still hungry, a little bit of snow won't be enough to stop the urge to keep searching for food, they've got to put some fat on.  Like last winter I'm sure we will see some around right into Christmas and beyond, hopeful that they can find some late coho.

After the snow stopped last night there was a little bit of light rain through the night, but not enough to take away much of the 5-10 cm of snow from yesterday in the Bella Coola Valley.  Today it tried really hard to clear in the valley, but only a few glimpses of the mountains were available once in awhile, just not enough air moving to push some of the clouds out.  Apart from the slippery roads in the upper valley in the morning, it was  good day.  Grizzly
