I am not sure if this bear was enjoying the beauty of the flowers but it did appear that way. It proceeded to eat some of the grass in the area but not the flowers so maybe there is some hope for wildlife.
One of the viewing platforms we use in the fall has a ramp that is covered with a metal cage. For some reason the juvenile grizzlies use this as a back rub and are curious that we are in the cage and they are free. This is like being in at “zoo” except we are the ones in a cage.
