The bears are very active this summer. The videos below show them enjoying themselves around 10 pm, playing in the rain, and searching for food. The mother bear is training her cubs to be independent. The cubs are exploring by themselves and are on a quest for some adventure! They will begin hibernating in late fall and will remain in their dens until Spring. So, it’s time to party-hardy before the summer is over!
“Grizzly bears and black bears generally do not eat, drink, defecate, or urinate during hibernation. Bears live off of a layer of fat built up during the summer and fall months before hibernation.” —Yellowstone, NPS

Some adorable black bears recently stopped by our cabin. We decided to keep our trail camera active for 3 months before changing the chip. And boy, did we capture some wildlife shenanigans! Kurt and I meticulously reviewed hours of trail camera footage and picked some of the best to share. Enjoy!
