Cemetery Bear


About 15 years ago I went on a trip to the mountain town of Lake City with my mom. During the trip we took a drive up to the Lake City cemetery to see my grandfather's grave. At one point during the drive up the winding dirt road I spotted a small bear. I got out of the car and took some pictures of it as it ambled off into the woods and even followed it a little. If the bear was a cub, it's mother was nowhere in sight.



Moments later, I realized that we'd found the grave. I'd unknowingly framed it in the first pictures.

Cool cemetery, too....

perhaps the bear protects the graves? I don't know if I'd be able to grab quality pics because I'd be running off like a little girl. lol

Well, I don't want to suggest I didn't sense any danger but the bear seemed pretty shy and I could have just ducked back into the car if it's mother showed up.

I should add that where I live now bears have been known to break into homes and maul people.
