Yellowstone Bears 1959

Recently we inherited a large cache of slides of Colleen’s grandparents’ travels in the 1950s-1970s. Not only did Urban and Sallie Childers have some really neat vacations, they left us with some really interesting photos.

One of my favorite places in the world is Yellowstone National Park, which I had the opportunity to visit in May 1996. I didn’t see any bears up close like the folks in this picture. I can’t even imagine people surrounding a mama bear and her cubs like this today.
