Food fit for a Bear

Food fit for a Bear
I am SO tired (happy tired!) after a wonderful day in the mountains today! I don't get out there very often at all, and certainly not as far as we went today, so it was an absolute treat! Friend Sandy had found an interesting Liverwort there very recently and wanted to go back to see it at a different stage, hoping it would make ID a little clearer. She asked if I wanted to go with her - ha, yes, you bet! We went past Banff and Lake Louise, as far as Bow Lake along Highway 93. They do say that this scenic highway is the most beautiful in the world, and it's easy to believe. This photo shows Canada Buffaloberries turning from yellow, through orange, to bright red. Bears love these berries and eat them in huge amounts. We were lucky enough to see two Black bears, not that far apart on the same road. Not good views and almost impossible to get photos, but I managed to get something that looks vaguely like a bear : ) Had hoped my photos would come out a bit better than they did, ha. And now it's time to falli into bed (half past midnight), before I fall asleep at my computer.
