these photos are taken in the last three days. The first one is a big male that I stumbled upon while on an early morning walk. I called out to him and he opened his eyes and just went back to sleep. The next day I came across a mom with two newborns. I got to watch them frolic for quite a while and then yesterday I encountered, while on another walk, this mom with three yearling cubs. She could care less that I was there and I got to watch two of the cubs go at it for about half an hour. They just stopped fighting, went back to mom and they meandered off. It's quite a time to be in Jasper if you like wildlife.
Soooo adorable... these cute cubs & that sleeping bear, begging you to go over to rub their head & pet them
