Happy Feast of the Transfiguration of our Lord! We were able to take a family hike up a mountain today, which is very fitting since the transfiguration took place atop a mountain.
While I didn't get a picture (too stunned), we did see our first black bear. The good news is we were in the car. Still, wow was he close! Once he saw us coming he turned and shimmied up a tree. I was glad to see he ran from us because if we were out of the car we'd want to run from him too!
Be saints, it's worth it! Lisa
