last time we were in Los Osos I couldn't get a picture of the bear so I
went back and walked to a spot where I could get a good picture of the
grand old bear.
is also said that many bears roamed the hill sides until the presence
of people and hunting ended their rule of the country side.
all that is left of the bear is this statue. A great statue it is
and when you visit the town you can't miss this creature. It is
as if he/she, I am not sure what gender the bear is but I always look
for the bear when I visit the town.
you want a picture of the Los Osos bear you have to stop on the side of the
road, with not shoulder, or going into town there is a road about 100
yards from the bear. Turn left, park and walk up a little path
and take the picture. Be careful, there is a lot of traffic on
Let's remember the Los Osos bear. Today, we take a moment or a pause in silence and remember the bear population which inhabited this area of our world. The Valley of the Bears or Los Osos is one great town to visit while your on vacation on the Central Coast of California.According to Wikipedia "The area was home to the Native American Chumash were the first inhabitants of the local area. These peoples relied partially on the harvesting of fish and shellfish (e.g. Macoma nasuta) from Morro Bay. There is a large Chumash archaeological site on a stabilized sand dune in Los Osos dating to at least as early as 1200 AD. Cabrillo first encountered the Chumash in the year 1542" For more information about the history of the town and area Los Osos Bear Click Here.
