After our long drive through the national park we decide to take a short drive around the park that was near our hotel. I was determined to see black bears because several people had said they had seen them. I said out loud “Bears, Bears, Come out Bears” not 30 seconds later Brandon yelled “CUB.” I looked ahead and there right in front of our car crossing the street were 2 baby black bear cubs. I looked around and then saw the momma bear. I told Brandon to put the car and reverse and that is what he did. We parked and got out and took some amazing pictures and video of these 3 bears. There were other people around and these bears were not afraid or aggressive at all. It was such a beautiful sight to see these bears in the wild. I was thrilled that my hope of seeing bears came true. This made the trip for all of us. After our short drive and adventure with the bears we ate dinner in town at Bubba Gump Shrimp and again walked the town some.

Autumn, your trip sounds amazing. I can't wait to see pictures of the bears. Randy will like them also, being a BU Bear like you. 🙂 It's strange how buildings shrink over the years. Imagine how much little Brooke will think it shrunk when she visits Graceland again in a few years.
