While in the Smokies, we saw a bear. It was the end of the first day and I loved it. Our hearts instantly raced as soon as we noticed the bear but it was over too quickly to react in any way. It was really cool to be able to see a bear out there without any real danger. It was also nice to know that the bear was afraid of me… probably because I am an intimidating person. It’s true.
We didn’t get a picture of the bear. However, I did find this video on YouTube that looks quite similiar to what happened in the woods.
