Only in New Hampshire

I was just settling down to get to work on my grad stuff when the phone rang. When I answered, the teenage girl from next door was hollering "You have to look outside there is a huge black bear in your backyard." They were out getting their camper ready to go on a trip tomorrow when the bear moseyed up their driveway and into our yard. By the time we got outside (I know, great idea there is possible a bear in your backyard so why not run out there!!!) we saw it walk up the drive of the house behind us. All I saw was a bear butt and its rear left leg. It was pretty big. The woman next door to the driveway it walked up was out watering her flowers and never even saw it. That would be pretty startling (to say the least) to turn around and have a big bear walking through the neighbors yard!!!

Only in NH...you're right! It looks like you're having tons of fun--great pics! I hope that all is well with all of you. Curiously, does David have any suggestions on a camera under ~$300? He's my resident camera guru :) Have a good one!

If I had turned around and saw that bear my shorts would need to be changed. LOL
