Friendly Greetings

We felt very welcomed during our first visit to Montana.
Mr. & Mrs. Bear even came out to greet us during a hailstorm.

When it stopped raining and hailing, a bear waved to us as we passed by.

This grizzly was a little grumpy being awaken by the loud thunder, but still willing to give us a sympathetic bear hug for enduring the bad weather.

This one was a little sad because business was slow so I went inside the store to look around.
I hope he had a smile on his face afterwards.

Pete swaggered up in roller skates and offered us some old-fashioned western hospitality by welcoming us inside his eating establishment.

When we were tired, the little cubs offered us their seats and entertained us with chats about their day.

Such a friendly bear village.

And they will never get angry.

It's so Wild West out there! I would hate to meet a bear in the wild, in real life, though! :D

Bears everywhere! I would love to see bears in the wild. From a distance! Sounds like your summer holiday is as rainy as mine!

You've sure got cute, friendly greeting from those bears. LOL

But like Jenny mentioned, count me out from ever greeting a wild one! xD

cocomino: We were informed to be careful at night because real bears do come out sometimes.

rainfield61: These bears don't eat much and are well-trained.

betchai: These friendly bears will not bite or chase.

Jenny Woolf: The stores sold bear spray and the hotels distributed flyers with instructions of what to do if we did encounter a real bear.

lina: Yes, real bears won't look this cute up close. :P

llandudnopictures: Luckily we did not see any real bears.

Great shots of bears! The real ones are the best. Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment.

glad these aren't real bears. i'd run a mile if i see one in the wild. said...

At first I want to say they are adorable, but why do I have a feeling that after awhile they became so common place they no longer held such "cuteness". Good for you for taking all of these - makes for a really fun post.
