Russian River Reds and Bears

Monday, August 14th, 2006

Hiked the Russian River with my friend Jan. I try to head up there a couple of times each summer to see the salmon jump up the falls – it’s always a cool thing to check out. It was tough to get a shot of a red in the air with the delay on digital cameras, so I just clicked away and took about 75 shots. From those, I did manage to get about 5 good pictures.

Lots of bear scat along the trail – and on our way back, this brownie was heading towards us and didn’t seem to want to get out of our way. We stood our ground (and made a bit of a fuss) and the bear was polite enough to yield the path to us.
