Default Bears Bears everywhere

Two decades ago I don't recall ever seeing a bear, now I see one, , , or two or more, just about everywhere.

I saw the same bear twice today. At least I think it was the same bear.

Since she only went a few feet off trail, we assumed there was a cub nearby and just moved along.

We have had several bear sightings in my neighborhood in the past few weeks. Last Thursday I did the Shannon Brook Trail at Castle in the Clouds and kept my eyes peeled for wildlife -- but saw only chipmunks. But when I got home around 4:00 PM, parked in my driveway, and walked around the back of my car, I surprised a small bear sitting at the edge of the woods about fifteen feet away. Fortunately he appeared to be more scared than I was and ran off...
