Camp Bonneville Bears

The Columbian recently ran a story about the clean up of the old army training grounds at Camp Bonneville in Washington. I was glad to read that a good portion would become a wildlife preserve. A couple years ago I recieved special permission from the army to set up remote cameras on the property and got some pretty cool shots of bears. One is a brown phase black bear taken in the dead of night (good thing too, the black ones don't show up so well in the dark).

The place is littered with un-exploded ordinance, some from the 1940's. I had to sign a waiver agreeing that I would not hold the US Army responsible for death or injury....
