Last week the groomers where I work were telling me stories of what they refer to as Bear Drives. Bear Drives are several hour drives that they take into the wilderness of the Flathead Indian Reservation, which is just north of Missoula. They've been doing these for years and have perfected a route in the mountains in which they almost always see at least one bear. Lucky for us, we saw a grouse, some deer, elk, and 2 bear - 1 black bear & 1 cinnamon bear. The black bear was too quick to take a picture of, but the little cinnamon bear was quite a character to take pictures of.
What a bear claw does to a tree.
