I have now seen bears in two national parks. This was taken at Mendenhall Glacier just outside of Juneau, Alaska.

There was a second bear cub behind the tree but he was being shy and climbed up the tree to avoid photos. I was standing on a wooden raised sidewalk over a stream. The bears were hanging out by the stream and totally ignoring all the tourists taking photos. No food is allowed at Mendenhall Glacier as the bears have become too used to humans and will come close to get food. They seem to particularly like mocha coffee drinks.

Not bad waiting out the storm in a Folklife Festival performance tent on the mall when this is the result.
