I just came in from a short (wet and wild) trip to the mountains. I had the new digital camera with me, and found this old snag just out of camp. This is very typical of bear looking for grubs, beetles, larvae, ants, termites, ect. They tear away the bark and old rotten wood, and lick up the goodies.
