The boys want to chase the animal with their bows and cameras. Mr. X and Elder Y want to examine its tracks on the pavement. The girls just smile. When the large and lumbering black bear leaves for greener pastures, your students look for all sorts of bear jokes in the scriptures, "Is a bear able to do good?" "You just said BEAR testimony! hahaha."
It was a good next to last day.

We soon stepped into the steepest part of the trail. Because we could dig our feet into the snow, the going was okay. Eventually we reached the last push to the summit and learned that wearing slick, nylon pants is a recipe for disaster when scrambling on old, alpine meadow grass. Mr. X was standing at the top shouting for me to "hold on and dig in".

"Spring has sprung, Spring has come,
Life is skittles and Life is rum [lifesavers]
I think the loveliest time of the year
Is the spring, I do, don't you, of course you do"
~Poisoning Pigeons in the Park by Tom Lehrer
It's undeniably spring though it was hard to tell just when it happened, but
- The fiddleheads are unrolling
- The tulips are starting to bloom
- The Airport trail was closed due to aggressive bear activity and
- The first cruise ship docked this morning
