So now I have to admit to a very stupid thing I did on our vacation. I saw several people pulled over alongside the roadway and so, curious and sometimes impulsive creature that I am, I wanted to find out what they were looking at. I walked up along the roadside of a pulled over motorhome, popped out in front of it to see what was there and there I saw it indeed. A bear. Not very far from me...standing there...on the side of the road...with no car around me as protection. I should have known, I suppose, that it was a bear that had caused people to pull over but I didn't stop long enough to even think about it.
And, even more stupidly, I took a couple pictures before common sense kicked back in, I realized what I was doing and high-tailed it down the road as quickly as I could. I'm sure that look on the bear's face is disgust with another silly tourist.
