bathing bear 2

If the focus is a tad soft on this image, it’s because I was shaking the camera (even though it was on a tripod) by laughing so hard at this grizzly sow’s antics.

I think bath-time is the highlight of a sow’s day:  they get away from their cubs (the little bears don’t care for deep water, so they wait on the shore for mom to finish her ablutions), they get to cool off (if it’s not cool and drizzly and breezy, it’s HOT by grizzly bear standards), and–as I’m sure all the moms reading this will agree–you just need a few minutes each day when it’s all…about…ME!!!

I just love the way the sows gave in to totally enjoying their baths, tuning out everything–and everyone–else around them.

When’s the last time you had this much fun?



  1. Good one!

  3. Aww that’s delightful! And yes, I can identify with Mama Bear 🙂

    • Hi TEBMF,

      Thanks. 🙂

      I think the world would be a happier place if everyone could indulge in a bath every day.

      I’m doing my part with morning and evening hot tubs! 🙂
