Because we did not see any bear while in Glacier National Park we decided to swing through Great Bear Adventure - where our car is our cage, lol.

They have 3 huge black bears wandering in an area where you can drive this loop of road as many times as you like before leaving.

I'm really glad we did it, it was fun seeing them, however it was hard to photograph them without cars in the way and through the window - you aren't allowed to roll your windows down.

You may have to do something over and over, but who says you must do it the same way each time?   Get creative ~ have fun with it!

Spent the day relaxing and appreciating all the good in my life.  Enjoyed seeing little birdie tracks in the snow.  It really is the little things!
