Walk Cut Short

We gripe when we have a walk cut short due to a sudden thunderstorm, but last night we accepted the Hu-Dad’s suggestion to take a short cut.

Whoa! Would you look at that?

With the ski area next door closed until November, we often walk through their parking lots during our evening strolls. We were headed to the far end of a particular parking lot when we realized it was already occupied by someone who did not look in a sharing mood.

A bear will get a walk cut short.

This time of year finds a lot of solitary bears wandering. Mom takes care of cubs for a year and a half, so the yearlings were kicked loose to live on their own earlier this summer. This is probably such a youngster and he/she (we didn’t get close enough to figure that out) is dining on the blackberries which are just now ripening. We decided to turn around and go a different way.

Pretty cool walk tonight, huh, Hu-Dad. And, yes, I am walking backwards.

  1. I think Hu-Dad’s suggestion to go another way when that bear was sited was an excellent idea!!! Better safe than sorry and LOVE the walking backwards Typhoon!!!!

  2. I’m glad you all accepted the hi-dad’s suggestion to cut your walk short… although a leashed bear would be a pretty cool addition to furmily walks 😍🐻
