Weathervane Wednesday ~ A Bear, seen at a famous roadside attraction for bears in New Hampshire

I post another in a series of weather vane photographs every Wednesday.  This started with images of weathervanes from the Londonderry, New Hampshire area, but now I've found interesting weather vanes all across New England and across the globe.  Sometimes my weather vanes are whimsical, or historical, but all are interesting.  Often my readers tip me off to some very unique or unusual weathervanes, too!  If you know a great weather vane near you, let me know if you'd like to have it featured on this blog.

Today's weather vane was photographed in New Hampshire.

Do you know the location of weathervane post #381?  Scroll down to find the answer.

If you have ever visited the White Mountains of New Hampshire you might have driven right past the famous trained bears at Clark's Trading Post in the town of Lincoln.  These bears have been a roadside attraction on U.S. Route 3 since the 1930s.  This attraction has grown from a small trading post with a few bears to a family run amusement park.  Above one of the museums in this park is this shiny two-dimensional copper bear weathervane.  It is still shiny and copper colored, so I don't think this is a very old weathervane.
