We went to Jasper National Park last week to drop my son off at a week long camp mountain biking and rock climbing and saw a couple different black bears. So this week after we picked him up we were driving to Jasper (Town site) and my wife says "The first one to see a bear gets a dollar!" Well it was no sooner off her lips than one of the kids in the back said "I see a bear" We thought that she said it just to get a dollar. Nope she gets a dollar. We have been to Jasper many times in the last 20 years and can count on one hand how many bears we have seen. In a week we have seen 3 and missed a sow and 2 cubs only by minutes at Maligne Canyon.
