The Bark in the Green Woods speaks with quiet wisdom of time.
Well some of the time it was quiet – the cone of silence didn’t help much in the under-brush.

Beautiful! There’s nothing quite like the bark of an old, rugged tree.

Glad you enjoyed the post. The shots were taken on the trail that runs along part Elliot Lake’s south shore , between what locals call the Old and New Beaches ( more like Older and Old ) – Spine Beach and Spruce Beach . Very tranquil as long as you do not run into any bears. 😀 Changes in weather patterns and the removal of the Spring Bear Hunt have not significantly altered the size of the bear population, just their foraging practices. Depending on availability of natural food sources they seek out urban living sources. The reduced hunting has made them less wary of humans.
Odin has finally had his plastic cone removed as the stitched wound has healed. The sound of him running through the shrubbery scared off most of the bears. My wife discovered it did not include all. 😀

Elizabeth said it was a cub, about the same height as Odin, but considerably heftier ( packing it on getting ready for winter) . Fortunately it took off because Odin, being the curious social butterfly that he is , tried to run up to see what the creature was up to. A young one like that will most likely run away, but there is always the chance Mother bear is about and will decide to protect her cub.
I’ve seen bear scat along the trail. Liz has noticed that some stumps and rocks turned over – obviously someone looking for yummy bugs .
If you put Of Bread and Bear in the blog search box, you can see my posts about the time a yearling cub decided to visit our backyard. 😀
