Vince Shute Bear Sanctuary.

Wondering how many of the Aspen Resort Blog followers have had a chance to visit the Vince Shute Bear Sanctuary. All the bears are wild bears and not caged. Between 15-50 bears can be seen on any given evening feeding while the volunteers wonder around amoungst the bears with feed pales. The Sancutuary is open Memorial day through Labor day and if your vacationing in the area, it is a must see. Become a fan of our Facebook page and post some of your own personal sanctuary photos if you've ever been there.

2013 is only 6 days old and in northern Minnesota that means plenty of cold temps and snow before we can get back to summer fun & fishing (out of a boat) on Pelican Lake. So here are a few photos to remind everyone how much fun there is to look forward to at Aspen Resort.
