Painting For The Day ~ A Cuddly Bear

yellowstone-encounter-post.jpg  This is not a bear you want to rub against your nose to help you sleep.  Erika and I were in Yellowstone hiking on this path a few years ago.  We had seen a few bears during the day – from a distance.  As we walked this trail we found ourselves alone.  I wasn’t very comfortable without a larger group to give any bears a wider selection of victims.  As we rounded a corner near a clump of trees I hear a loud deep guttural sound; so close I knew it was all over.  A very near heart attack!  An almost load in my pants!  The sound was a small “old faithful” type gas pocket venting.  Why does nature make those things sound just like my imagination of angry bear noises?
