Family of Bears Carving Install – Velva, North Dakota

I was chasing this giant, black cloud all through my drive across ND.  When I finally arrived in Velva, within minutes, this nasty black cloud started dropping hard rain and hail.edited-0899 edited-0901

Next morning, the install began. Thankfully they had some heavy equipment to move the carvings.

We used scissor lifts to bolt the cubs to the giant log rafter.

We installed the 3 cubs, the sign and big momma bear and everything fit nicely thankfully! Yeah!!!
