As you can imagine, I have been up to my neck in training Guest Service Agents, but last week I had to swap hats and put on my "manager" hat for a couple of days of manager training. Today...I put my "trainer" hat back on. Bridge Bay Campground checks in today and training starts tomorrow morning.
The real interesting part is when the Canyon folks arrive next week...I get to wear both my "manager" hat AND my "trainer" hat. Is there any wonder I'm waking up at 3:00 a.m. with my mind racing of everything I have to do. Thank goodness for to-do lists (and a supportive husband)!
OK - enough about my craziness. I'm sure you are more interested in the bears I mentioned in the title. Although I've been working hard, I still get time off. Bill and I went into the park yesterday and saw 5 bears!! You read that right...F-I-V-E bears! They were all black bears and seen within an 18 mile stretch between Mammoth Hot Springs and Roosevelt.
Here ya go.....
After walking around a bit....
...he decided to take rest by sitting on a downed tree.
Bears #4 & #5
The picture isn't great, but this looked like a mom and a yearling.
Seeing the bears was fantastic, but Yellowstone's scenery never disappoints:When we stopped for lunch, we had this pull-out all to ourselves. In a few minutes, we were joined by a group of bison.
The moms were very careful to look both ways before crossing the street.
Working and living in Yellowstone...it's tough, but somebody has to do it!!
