Well, guys, this is my bear name for this now more than a month away in sometimes sunny Canada.

My family bear watching. Guess who's the most exited about it?

How do you actually get a bear name? I hope some are in a curious frame of mind. So all it takes is someone else to come up with it and give it to you ideally before arriving in Canada to meet bears amongst all other creatures.

So waste no more time and join our 4x4 bear viewing photo tour.

Bears have really sharp claws.

This is a guided private excursion which let us explore the Whistler Olympic Park and the 2010 Legacy Trail Network.

This fascinating ecosystem is not accessible to the general public at all and is currently home to lots of mother bears and their cubs, as well as a few males searching for new mates.

The Canadian all-year-round resort of Whistler is well known for its black bear population.

Watching the sunset at the top of the ski jumps for a heightened view of the valley was a bonus. We even saw a grizzly bear! You can easily tell it apart from the others by the hump on its back.

As you can see the snowy peaks are still a common sight here even right now in July. Unfortunately clouds of starving mosquitoes are just as common.

I recommend having a second camera battery on you as zooming in quickly drains it as we, the photographers, perfectly know.

Taking layered clothing really helps as the weather changes quickly in the mountains and you easily get three seasons in one day.

I also powered up 28 Steem and below are screenshots of these vital transactions.

This is an amazing post. I watched the bears in a huge enclosure. In fact, it was a part of the forest surrounded by a fence. But this is not at all what you showed. Your shots are incredible. Maybe you want to work at National Geographic :)

No fences here at all! You need a special permit to get into the Olympic Village which the bear company had. They are the one and only doing the tours here, timing it well with the sunrise or sunset. Initially we expected that this will be a morning trip but when we phoned them the day before they told us that we are actually on an evening one which was even better. You literally drive for hours around the park, including off-road and stop to watch the bears wherever you want. You shouldn't jump off the car when you see a bear. Bears have charged the cars before but not when we were touring. Still you sign a waiver so you are aware of everything that might happen after all. Job at the National Geographic would be fantastic! I bet even volunteering there involves a long wait. I have also been on National Geographic trips which are truly awesome. They are quite pricey but worth it.

That looks so exciting, I think for the local people it is almost like for us our bunnies. But for tourists that is a real highlight to see those wild animals so clear and also have a chance to get a picture :)

Thank you ever so much @stef1 We loved the bear photo safari! I totally agree with you, locals are quite used to seeing bears just the side of the road and do not wish to spot them near their mountain lodges or meet them whilst hiking.

What a difference when you see an animal so free you see it so calm that you enjoy its large size such great photos, it's great that you obtained permission I imagine it's a long list to be able to enter.
Cheers!
