Dear Martin and Louise,
Sorry it's taken so long to send you a photo . . . you know how
newlyweds are! Hope you are well. Have you spotted that bear, that
2-year cub any time over the rest of the summer? We still get excited
thinking about it. If we could, we'd love to come back to Fourpeaks for
another vacation . . . we had such a lovely time.

Report of bear sighting at Ridge Camp.
Tuesday, June 8, early evening. We were in the Well House.
We heard splashing in the Cow Pond and looked out the window.
There was a clear spot in the floating algae, through which
a young bear was poking his head, shaking it and dunking
back in the water in play. From the tracks he appeared to have
entered the pond by the Jeep Road at the culvert by camp.
Martin says this was a 2-year old cub just abandoned by his
Mom and now all on his own, not yet fearful of human scent,
a playful adolescent.
Wednesday June 9, morning, spotted same bear on Blueberry Trail
near camp. He ran away.
Wednesday June 9, evening, heard bear breaking brush nearby,
traveling through woods. Went outside to look, but did not
sight the bear, just heard him in woods.
