Meeting The Great Bear

The four-year-old and his grandmother enjoyed the springlike weather this past weekend hiking at Great Bear.

They hiked about two miles.

He liked exploring the Pump House, the many foot bridges they crossed, the river along the Towpath trail and “leaving footprints in what little snow there was in the gravel bed area,” she said.

This was his first hike at Great Bear and he thought it was, “awesome,” she added.

He spotted the carved bear as soon they got there and wanted to meet him. She took this photo to document the event.

“When we hike, he insists on wearing his backpack so his friend, ‘Slush,’ (a stuffed Siberian Huskey) can peek out the top and enjoy the sights on the trails!” she said.
