I was in Orleans for just over a week and I am still playing catch up.
I saw 4 bear on this trip which is a world record.
This was not the bear I saw. (Yikes! What big feet you have!)
These photos were taken on Dolan’s Bar.
We saw 2 bear (1 black, 1 cinnamon) on the float trip between Persido Bar and that take out that’s under the bridge (Stuart’s?). Both times they were scampering up a steep mountain face. There was a third bear but I did not see it, only heard it.
I left Sunday morning at 5:30am and I saw two more bear on the road between Orleans and Happy Camp. Same thing, one black, one cinnamon. One scampering up a steep mountain face and the other bounding across the road. If I had a dash cam I would have a picture.
I have so many updates and scribbled notes and I am not feeling super energetic about sitting at the computer.
Possibly some more updates or a few photos or something to come.
