Arctic Valley Bear Hike

Our hiking crew up in Arctic Valley in the fog. It is just early spring up high in the mountains and conditions were snowy and wet with little foliage.

Trickster kids rubbed last year's crowberries on their hands and feigned injury.

We crossed streams and snow patches and parts of trails that turned into little creeks.

We unknowingly hiked right past this bear den and kept moving quickly.
The girls and I saw a black bear on the side of the road on the way down from the safety of the car.

Kids in the mountains!
