I am the Wolf/Bear Whisperer!

edited August 2010 in All Encompassing Trip
So, to celebrate my wife’s b-day on Sunday while backpacking in the Sawtooths, I managed to convince three different wolf packs to start a midnight howling competition in her honor and then arranged for a beautiful black bear to make an appearance the next morning to show Jamie its cute and fluffy cub. I’m telling you people that they just don’t come much sweeter than ol’ eyed.

What would you like for your b-day? Rabid moose? I'll see what I can do...

    (did you get to pet the bear? They're really soft! :D )

    Hmmm bears are covered...maybe some lions and tigers? Oh My!
    The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.

    Don't worry about the book _ just make sure to punch a couple of holes in the top of the box so the wolverine can breathe. And a couple of scoops of Purina Wolverine Chow, too.

    Hey Eyed, you ever heard of a Blue Bear? i was watching NatGeo Channel this weekend and there was a guy insearch of a rare Blue Bear in Alaska, soppossedly the size of a grizzly with the coat of a Black Bear, but with a blue tint and dark blue patches. There was one old pic some one had that he took like 25 years ago, said they think long ago they were common, the blue used to help the bear blend into the sea ice, but once the Grizzles and Black bear's moved into it's territory they started interbreeding with it and there traits took over.

    No it's okay, in fact...I kind of did that as an opening for one of my fellow Seinfeld fans to take the bait.

    Well done! :lol: :D

    :D I'm terrible...when channel surfing, I have to pretend I don't see that Seinfeld is on, because even if it's halfway thru, and I start watching, I am either: a) trying to remember the next joke or b) trying to find Superman...
