Friendly neighborhood bear

This morning, Tom and I were treated to the sight of this beautiful bear in our backyard. I've seen this bear before in our neighborhood – it crossed the street as I was driving down into the Valley to go climbing – it looks really sleek and healthy. I was gratified this morning to see that it was looking for food by ripping open fallen logs (you can see him hard at work in the picture), rather than rooting through someone's garbage. It's so nice to see wildlife doing wild things.
