I have often passed close to the Northern tip of Bear Island just passed the mail dock and noticed a bear carving on shore.  On one of our trips to the island I went for a walk along the trails to find out more.

 

“Phillip the Bear” in memory of Stetson Laronde, whose favorite times of his eight summers were spent on Bear Island and of all others who have love the beauty and tranquility of this special place. August 1998 (Visible at the North end of Bear Island on private property of the Laronde family).
