Heading from skyline drive to Luray caverns. It was a tad bigger than a large dog, so momma must have been somewhere nearby. I was surprised at just how black black bears are, it looked almost perfectly black. It was pretty neat.

That's racist.

I had a big blackie in my back yard last month eating his well earned meal from my trash can. I asked him what he was doing and he proceeded to take a piss in my back yard. They are still cool creatures!

meh... big deal.

PS, I've lived in Alaska for 10 years now.  I never get tired of seeing bears.

I love seeing bears. Both black and brown in the yard this year.

I like bear sausage even better.

I take the family to The Great Smoky Mountains National Park, usually once a year. Bear watching is one of our favorite activities. In the last six trips, we have not been disappointed. We saw 8 on our trip in August this year, including 5 cubs. I got within 10 yards of a small male.

And this is the real reason why bears have been such a nuisance lately.

Not enough hunting, and too much public interactions.
