Speaking of bears, we finally spotted one yesterday!
We were driving back from dumping the fish guts at the closed dump and it was just before dusk. We're actually surprised that we haven't seen one yet. We bring the camera with us every time, and finally it payed off...
Hey, what are you lookin' at?
The old dump is just on the other side of that ridge of trees.
He didn't seem at all bothered by us stopped at the side of the road. He (she?) noticed us, looked our way, and continued meandering his way up the hill.
There are a lot of bears in Canada, but you really don't see them that often.
Black bear habitat showed in red. The black dot is where we are currently located.
It was another beautiful day yesterday, and quite a few people came out to the park for the day. Besides a free bundle of firewood, this campground has another bonus. Most campgrounds force you to leave your site at a certain checkout time, or pay a fee to stay a little later in the day. Here at Sturgeon Lake Regional Park, if there is nobody booked into your site for the next night, you can stay until the end of the day for no extra charge. A LOT of campgrounds could learn from this!
We took it easy yesterday. Ruth scrubbed and cleaned all five rental boats. 2 canoes, 2 kayaks, and a paddle boat. I painted 11 or 12 picnic tables. My painting hand is a bit sore this morning!
