Skiing and Biking with Black Bears

bears_charliftThe Bears Go Over The Mountain.  By ski, or rope or cable.  On the left is “Sunshine”, At the right is his sister “Mabel”.  They dearly love to ski and so, Refuse to hibernate.  Instead invite you all up here Where snow and skiing’s great.

We had quite a good black bear sighting on our mountain bike ride today – same bear (presumably) on two occasions, great view each time.  It seems like an appropriate time to share this rather bizarre vintage postcard from Quebec, Canada.
