Despite the fact that I have taken many road trips through the U.S. and Canadian Rocky Mountains and hike and camp, I have only seen bears on two occasions. The first time was in Canada's Glacier National Park. While driving along the road, I saw a mother black bear and her cub. They were a rich deep brown color. I stopped, They stopped. We looked at each other for a long while; then they quietly went on their way. The second time was in Mammoth Lakes, CA. A large lumbering bear ran right through the main intersection. It was moving very quickly! It was unsettling and exciting to see such a large bear. I do not think I would like to come face to face with one on a hiking trail.
Have you seen any bears?
