#NatureDoodlewash A surprise!

June 21  Imagine if you will going around a corner on you favourite nature trail and coming across one of these guys.  A black bear.  Staring back at you, midstride, mid trail.  All stop.  You find yourself muttering a few choice unrepeatable words.  What to do?  Make noise, look big!  Ya, make noise look big!!  The black bear is just as startled.  He high tails it into the woods and you do an about face and walk as briskly as humanly possible in the opposite direction from whence you came.  A true story.  Talk about an adrenalin rush.  Where is a camera when you need it?  I don’t think I would have even had a chance to take a picture it all happened rather quickly.
