    2nd one was as close as 20 yards. looked to the side and there he was standing several feet off the ground on an handing downed tree, climbed out of the tree and followed me up the trail for a while. This was on Colombo Return. pretty cool

    I saw her the other day with 4 cubs! I think one is a little older. Funny the little noises they make. The mother couldn't run away faster as the little ones dart up trees

    Sparta, NJ - the town where you blame the Bears for doing dumb shit instead of the teenager next door. image.jpg image.jpg

    3 Bears Friday coming off the yellow past the pond on the double track heading back towards the parking lot. not paying attention and BAM 2 cubs with Mom right there. under 25'. cubs scatter. Mom runs several feet away and then stops to stare me down. seems like I see bears WMA\Mahlon every ride now.

    This was around the corner from the Ogden Trail, a little guy maybe a year old on top of an apple tree. I have seen him up there three different days. .
