Berry Eating Bear near Phelps Lake
My 10 year old son Evan spotted his first bear 10 feet off the trail near the Phelps Lake overlook on the way back from summitting Static Peak. His older brother had walked on by without noticing it a minute earlier. With Evan glued to my leg, I struggled to identify if this was a Black Bear, or a Grizzly. As you can see, it is a Black Bear. Thanks to hiking partner Dennis Goldsmith for taking this shot.
