Bear Watching

Bear watching at the Outpost during late summer months especially requires little or no effort.

During the spring and early summer, when the bears are feasting on berries, an early morning or dinner time ride or walk around the compound will most-often lead to sightings of black bear in the undergrowth, or at water's edge, upturning rocks along the shore.

But in late summer and early autumn, the bears put on a show of their own. Often, in the early morning and sometimes again around dinner time, a half-dozen or so bear first visit the hay field up-river by the barn - where they snack on tender young hay shoots before making their way down river to the estuary for a main course of spawning salmon.
