Pat Kervin just emailed me this picture he took today near Port Hardy. I hope the boys didn't meet any this big while they were sitting out the weather at Cape Scott! Last time I was at Cape Scott I actually did see a bear like this one. It walked right past my tent just before bedtime. I decided to move the tent to a different area!
Pat mentioned that you tend to see a lot of black bears by the highway this time of year. They come out to eat grass! Today he saw this large male, a female with two cubs, then another female with three cubs all in quick succession. Jeff and Keirron mentioned they had seen a lot of bears from their kayak these last few days too. -- Jon
