Alligator River Wildlife Refuge..August 19, 2016 .Awesome Bear Day

The last two weeks of the tram tours were really great for Bears. This one started with a rainbow so I should have known we were in for a treat .  We started with a bear I call Slo-joe , I have had 4 encounters with him just slowly strolling down Sawyer Road taking his own sweet time. 

The last bear was the big one who decided to take a little dip ...So I will only post a few photos of the bears...it was hard to get photos for me because he was so close I could not safely get out of the truck .   But I enjoyed his face as he tested the water and then sat down to cool off
Clear sky Rainbow to start the day
