While out on a motorcycle ride to check out trailhead conditions for an upcoming ski trip I was lucky enough to stumble upon this bear sitting on a hillside. I quickly grabbed my camera gear out of my pack before it ran off and was fortunate enough that it hung out just long enough for me to grab a few shots. I was thrilled when it actually stood up before running off into the brush. With all the time I spend in the mountains, I still rarely run into bears in WA, so this experience was beyond exciting. Bears are awesome!
