Snow on the Bear

Well, that silly bear should be hibernating and then it wouldn't have to worry about being snowed on!

Our daughter in Cotopaxi heard some noise in their basement (which opens to the outside) but thought it was her cats. After a couple of hours she went down the steps and was confronted by a Mama bear and two cubs! Huge, all of them. Her Golden started taking after the bear but came back when she called him. After a bit of a standoff the bears ambled on...

But they had torn up the garage area pretty well!

Fortunately no one was hurt!

Wow!! I've been here almost three years and I still haven't seen a bear. They roam the streets at night trying to break into trash cans.

I bet your daughter sees bighorn sheep a lot, too around the Cotopaxi area. Lucky!

Yes, in fact, when we visited them a year ago last September, we saw a lot of bighorn sheep and I was able to get some nice photos of them...

Go to L & L Photography and click on the Colorado galleries:

The bighorn sheep are in the second Colorado gallery, starting at about 55 ...

You saw a bunch of them! Beautiful gallery you have there. I'm hoping for a once in a lifetime photo of a male bighorn posing on a rock someday! Maybe along highway 114 or along the Arkansas River.

A very inviting bear he is, too.

That bear looks like he is laughing in that picture!
