We're on Bear Patrol!

We have been traveling along the coast between Canada and Alaska.  It is really beautiful here.

We have also been seeing a lot of bears!  We went to the bear viewing platform in Hyder.  We saw two bears there.

We saw a little black bear eating berries.

Jaws, a brown bear
Then we saw an older brown bear.  His name is Jaws.  He has a droopy lip.  The park ranger thinks that Jaws got his lip hurt when he got into a fight with another bear.

When we left Hyder, we saw eight black bears before we got to Lake Kinaskin.

Then, yesterday, we saw a beautiful brown bear.

Do you know the difference between a black bear and a brown bear?  I'll tell you more in our next post!
