I floated the upper Kenai over the weekend, and usually have no problem finding brown bears on the river. Well no brownies this time, but I did see a small black bear!

I had to share this picture i took, because i laugh every time i pass this part of the river.

Just south of where the sightseeing companys launch their rafts, someone put this stuffed bear on a stump.I'm guessing it's so they can scream "bear" and watch the tourists scramble! I've seen this for years, but have never thought of taking a picture.
