Sounds like one hell of a day. I envy the country you get to see and hunt.

Some overdue pics to go with my last installment.  First, a grouse road at dawn on the way up.

The hill I hunted and where I saw the bear.   Red arrow points to the road pass in the ridge where I started hiking.  Blue arrow points to the little meadow behind the summit where I napped. (Important info!).  :laf: Yellow arrow is near where I sat and watched the saddle and swale/ravine to the right.  Green arrow is where the bear was eating berries.

My view of the saddle.  The bear was at the red dot.

I showed pics of distant goats so will continue that tradition by showing part of this bear, at about 230 yards from me.  He never gave me a look at his whole body but his head had a big dome with small ears down on the side, good indicator of a large bear.

Looking toward the southwest at Mt. Baker, WA. showing the northeast side, a view seldom seen.  Huckleberry leaves in the foreground.

Jim, you were likely twice as high in CO, in elevation.  The top of that mountain where the bear was is only 5500 feet high.  Timberline is much lower near the coast, plus being farther north.  The biggest difference is that our mountains start up from sea level while in CO they start from a mile high plain.

Great pics and mark ups - it makes one appreciate the distances and country you're hunting.
