Government Camp, Oregon: Fearsome Bear Made of Metal Disks

The big bear, standing on his hind legs with his paws up and claws extended, is labeled simply "Kodiak." He stands next to somebody's driveway (Mr. and Mrs. Kodiak?)

Bear Made of Metal Disks

The bear sculpture is made of metal disks. Much larger than we thought it would be! The town of Government Camp is quite fun, too.
