Bears Begin to Return

They’re Baaaack…

We were visited by this black bear Sunday and Monday, April 24-25. These photos were taken from our deck in Pine Mountain on Lassen Way. I gave a blast of a marine air horn—succeeding only in causing my wife to jump out of her shoes and socks. The bear didn’t flinch. It wasn’t until we banged on a steel bowl that the noise caused him to move on.—John and Theresa Barrios
