Berries are definitely behind schedule!

They sure are. But if we continue to get some moisture, it could be a bumper crop. At least for the west side blackberries.

Idk about everyone elseís areas but where I live we have bears all year from 350í to 4í000 or more. They donít migrate they live at all elevations.  There has been a crazy amount of plant growth this spring

He doesn't like the way you smell.

Thatís actually the same facial expression my wife gets when I come home from hiking 10+ miles looking for bears in mid July.

Ran into some bear sign at 7000+ on the east side this weekend. 5-6 piles. Some a week or so old, and some "yesterday" fresh. Was a little surprised to see bear sign so high up already...

Saw one up off the PCT on Saturday, 5000 feet, S facing slope, snacking on glacier lillies.  He'll probably have moved on in 3 weeks, but cool to see one there.
