I headed into the Cascades yesterday to look for bears and was welcomed by a verdant green in every direction. It reminded me why it is that the Pacific Northwest makes such good bear habitat. More than one hundred plant species in the North Cascades of Washington are considered grizzly and black bear foods. Keep an eye out for them in your backyard, and in the backcountry – it’ll help you to start thinking like a bear which makes for a more interesting hike, and also keeps you safer. Here are a selection of shots I thought you might enjoy. Thanks for tuning in!
