It wasn't an elephant this time, but an almost full grown bear, crossing the river road on the upstream side of Marshall.
Although I know they're around our place -- Justin spotted one a few weeks ago below our barn -- I never see them. So this was exciting.
There's something so appealing about bears -- being brought up with teddy bears may account for it. But why did teddy bears become so popular?
I can fully understand why many primitive peoples venerated these magnificent critters.
