So I forgot this tidbit of an event. While driving from Whitefish back to Dupuyer with the Sea King Burt spotted a bear. Actually it was three bears. We turned around and so did every one else on that stretch of highway. One van was full of Hutterite women and kids. Here’s a definition of Hutterite: a member of either an Anabaptist Christian sect established in Moravia in the early 16th century, or a North American community holding similar beliefs and practicing an old-fashioned communal way of life. Hutterites do not shun technology. Here’s a link to their own web page: Hutterites.org. You can read more there. I just learned that music is a big part of their culture. That makes me even happier that they so obviously enjoyed our show the other night. And we shared a moment of joy watching three bears along the highway. The bears’ necessity was a cow carcass in the creek.

Three bears and the bear necessities.
