Spend a day−things to do nearby… » Bears at Grandfather Mtn

Only one in ten black bears are born with red hair, so it was very surprising when two of the three cubs born on Grandfather Mountain this winter displayed this rare coloring. Cinnamon and Nutmeg, along with their darker brother Pepper, were sired by a cinnamon-colored bear named Kodiak. Of the four cubs that Kodiak has fathered with these cubs’ mother, Yonahlossee, three have been this rare color.
