Momma bear was just cold-chilling and I got some great pictures. At some point a jeep with a dog barking came thru, and that really perked Momma-bear up. She then took a hard, steady look at me, and I figured it was time to go.

However, I was adamant about my safety. I looked at the guy standing next to me taking pictures. About 75, braces on both knees and a cane. I figured I could outrun him easy...

I'm guilty too. Took my bear shots in Cades Cove, momma in the tree taking a snooze with the cubs. Meanwhile the DW is freakin' out. I learned later that bears can actually run up to 35 mph.....

They get 4 million visitors a year. Everybody and anybody comes all year long, not just the summer. I tried October, just a busy.
