We had our first bear sighting of the season today. We were just on our way up the hill from Golden and were talking about the fact we hadn't seen any bears yet. Spring is when you see a lot of bears around Vagabond Lodge. Well no sooner we talked about not seeing any bears, there was a probably a 2 year old black bear at the side of the road feeding on the green grass. The bear showed no signs of being afraid of our car. He wandered away at first and then after a couple of minutes near the edge of the trees, came back up towards us. I have seen up to 8 or 9 bears on one trip between Golden and Vagabond Lodge which is only 13 km.
