I have just returned from visiting family in Terrace, on the north coast of British Columbia. While there we took a day trip up the Nisga'A highway(#113). We saw many interesting sights which I will be sharing with you, most exciting for me was the wildlife.
We saw a black bear and her cub along the side of the road. They were in a flat area at the edge of the forest. The mamma bear was between us and her cub and did not seem too worried about our presence. We stopped the car long enough for me to take some pictures. No one got out of the car and we did not want to risk angering her so did not stay more than a couple of minutes.
These bears hibernate during the winter months and this cub may have been born over the winter. Her coat is matted and she may have emerged from hibernation recently. She was eating dandelion heads and other vegetation and after briefly considering whether we were a threat went back to her meal.
