“Good Scents” – Black Bear
11″H X 9″L X 6″W – Edition of 48
Our folks took us to the mountains nearly every weekend. One night on our way home, a young bear
crossed the road. Dad quickly stopped and a pile of Russell kids tumbled out of the Suburban.
Everyone except for me. Mom grabbed me before I could exit and told me I was too young and that Dad
shouldn`t have his kids out with a bear. I could hear them chattering about the little bear, who had
quickly found a tree, just in flashlight range. That was one time that being the youngest did NOT
pay off. I’ve been fascinated with bears ever since.
