Bears in a Rockrimmon Tree in Colorado Springs
Update September 13, 2012
The Bears are back and in the same tree these could be the same Cubs from 2009. View the video at the bottom of this post.
On the morning of 6/30/2009 a friend of mine, Barbara called me with a siting of 3 bear cubs and mother bear in a tree in their backyard. So I loaded up my photo gear and headed down in hopes of photographing these bears. The bears were asleep on different parts of the tree between 30′ to 50′ up. After the cubs awoke they were playing and climbing all over the tree while mom was still asleep. After the cubs woke-up their mom they all climbed down to the base of the tree and the 3 bear cubs enjoyed a delicious breakfast.
