Finally... a bear!

We (especially Denise) have been diligently looking for a bear for a few weeks. We just missed seeing one in Yellowstone, but today in Glacier we saw 2! I got some pictures of this guy through the trees by the side of the road in the Many Glacier region.

This appears to be an adult Black bear sporting a white spot on his chest. We got out of our car (along with several other people who stopped to check him out) but stayed a good distance away. He didn't care about us and went about his business eating berries. 

He or she looks to be about 300-400 lbs

You can see him (her?) eating the berries
She seems to be smiling at us!
OK, we can check that box now! Next stop moose.
