A bear tracking we will go …

"Sure," the couple said.

And as my new friends moved away from the board, I saw for the first time a sheet of paper taped to the glass that said "Caution Bear Sighted."


"Are we going anyway?" I asked.

Sure, I was told. Black bears run from humans.

And that is a documented fact true of all bears? So, why the need for a warning to take caution? And how would one be cautious if we do encounter a black bear on our walk? Would a stick help?

The questions would have to wait as my group was setting out, and there was nothing to do but follow since the car had been locked.
