Black bear cub in Enchanted Valley, Olympic National Park

Black bear cub in the Enchanted Valley, Olympic National Park

This weekend I finally headed into the wilderness for the first overnight backpacking trip of the year.  I headed back into the Enchanted Valley with my husband by my side once again.  As we made our way along the Quinault River, after nearly ten miles of hiking we noticed a black bear and her cub.  We made sure to keep a safe distance as we continued our hike and made constant noise to alert the bears of our presence.  I snapped a few photographs as the cub curiously looked in our direction.
