It reminds me of a story......

In Twisp there was a place called Burger Queen.  My brothers Mother in law used to go in early and bake the donuts fresh for the day.  One morning she was doing her thing.  The door knob was rattling like someone was trying to get in.  Seriously in those days you,weren't worried about bad people.    She went and opened the door, and there stood a bear.   She had taken the trash out (two day olds) and must had some maple on her hand.   He was waiting for his donut.    He just stood there.   She politely closed the door in his face. :tung:

That burger queen was a pretty good lil place to get some grub! My family has cabins up the Twisp river road and we spend Labor Day weekend there every year. Was sad to see it go

Awesome pic!

That's a pretty thick bear for its height, my son killed a 12 1/2 yo sow smaller than that.  ;)

Nice pic. :tup:
