One-eyed Jack Marks a Tree and Takes a Bath

As I sit here watching a snowstorm outside, it's fun to watch a video of a bear doing a typically summer activity. 

You might remember One-Eyed Jack, a bear who visited an elk carcass in June. He had a spa evening recently, rubbing his back on a tree and taking a bath. He is looking fabulous. He's fat and ready for winter. What a year for him! He mated with a bear sow who is a great mom (Mohawk) and he found plenty to eat. I'm happy for him.

Check out the video if you have time. It's short but relaxing.

  8. Nice to see water in that little pool! And a big beautiful guy enjoying it so much. Hope the snow tamps down the wildfires in your neck of the woods (not threatening your area directly, I think?).

    Cheers,

  15. Hi Jack! I had to watch this twice because the first time I was watching I caught the movement of 2 bucks in our yard! Nature while looking at nature.
