A lady at work saw my website and asked if I could make a sign for her husband for the cottage sign post as a Christmas gift. After working out the details with her, this is what I came up with.

- Distance to Jasper from their cottage is 3141 Km
- Black Bears all over the place
- They were both working at the Jasper Park Lodge which is where they met and fell in love. She asked if there was some way of representing the lodge so I found a picture of the sign as it is now (renamed to the Fairmount Jasper Park Lodge) which I used as a reference
- Spruce trees are all over the place (I think the Black Bears….well, you know, ‘go’ in the woods)

Three coats of General Finish Enduro which I hope will hold up to the weather.

Fun project.

Thanks for looking….Don

Good idea giving the bear something to “stand” on. Some folks woulda just had him floating in air. And you captured the sign very well!
