There were many reasons for naming my blog bear. Turns out I also secretly want one for a pet—a pet that would live in the forest (natural habitat) and I’d frequently visit. Okay maybe more of a friend less of a pet. I receive National Geographic’s newsletter and today I discovered something new: spirit bear. Isn’t he/she lovely? I’ve seen a few wild bears in the forest surrounding my hometown, Halfway, OR. Once, while working for the Forest Service we drove by (and stopped, I did not get out of the truck—I could sense mama was close) a few cubs and once while enjoying the Snake River (from the opposite side of the river). Lovely creatures aren’t they? Now I need to travel to the Great Bear Rainforest in Canada and see me one of these lovelies.
Note: My personal computer has a coma and I am in the process of waking her up—but how… If anyone follows this blog to the extent they've noticed I do apologize. I have a few posts in the works, soon to follow.
