Dh started saying quietly, and then louder and louder..
"Uh, guys, stop....STOP....HEY GUYS, STOP!!!!"
Finally we noticed him and stopped.
"Everyone across the road!"
Me, the rule follower...."But it is taped off. We're not supposed to go across the road."
"I think they'll understand."
Our dusty footprints are now part of the new pavement!
After we crossed the road along came another bear.
Now here is where my sis and I differ. I took my few picts, saw another bear get into an altercation with this bear and decided we needed to skedaddle, even if we were across the road. Sis was having too much fun taking picts.
Click, click, click...
And the first bear crossed the road towards us.
Click, click, click....
And it started paralleling our path across the parking lot.
Click, click, click....
And then she teases ME about getting a shot of ME running from the bear!!
Excuse me, but when a bear notices me at that distance, I ain't sticking around for extra photos, thank you very much!!!
I have to say, you don't really think about how dangerous they are at first, not until you realise they know you are there anyway.
We saw a couple of other folks about to head up the sidewalk. I hollered across the way until they heard me, BEAR!!!. By the time we got to the car and were headed out, a ranger had been posted to the area. I don't know if the folks we called out to called them, or what, but they were very quick on the scene.
And now I get to tell everyone we had a bear adventure!
