He also commented on the more than usual amount of
> bear-sign that he'd seen.
Helen just wrote me and said the same thing. She saw the tracks of
several bears, from cubs to adults, and including a REALLY BIG one,
all in one place. That's a lot, and I'm hearing the same from others
too. What I've seen in Tahoe is about normal for here so far.
But that doesn't bother me, our bears are (generally) pussycats...or
at least, they have never been a proplem for me personally. Having to
look out for rattlers up here is new for me though, and I don't relish
it. Plus cougar populations are rising fast--now THAT is a critter I
hope I never tangle with!!!
