Blueberry Barren, near Elgin, New Brunswick, Canada

The sun came out briefly before noon when I was driving through the barrens. This morning I was at Wolfe Lake in Fundy National Park talking with a friendly Park Ranger about my painting trip, along comes another ranger with a good size black bear in a bear trap trailer!!! They let me look at the bear and it roared and charged at the cage end of the trap, very frightening to be near such an unhappy wild animal. They were relocating the bear to a quiet part of the Park. The Ranger told me to take a Midland Rd/ Mechanic Rd, dirt road to check out the foliage in the valley near Elgin. What he didn't tell me was that the road went right through the blueberry barrens! A lucky day!
