One of the great things about being on the North Shore of Lake Superior is that there are tons of cool and out of the ordinary things to do.... and you are constantly learning!!!!
Today we headed 1 1/2 hours north to Ely MN to check in on some wildlife.
First stop - International Wolf Center....
After a good education on wolves, you think we'd be tired of wildlife - but no....
Onto the North American Bear Center (one of our favorite places!!!!)
The girl below is Tasha - she's a yearling (18 months I think) and still adjusting to the other bears. Her momma was hit by a truck and after attempting to release her in the wild, she was deemed unable to return. (I think that's the story).
If you want to watch the bears in action (even watch them hibernate) you can watch the bear cam....
We had a great day with the bears and the wolves - and learned a lot!!!!
