Tara complained to the ranger about a dog which barked all night. It was over by the RVs and sounded like a big dog, a hound making a deep bray steadily through the dark hours till dawn.
"I can't talk right now," said the ranger. "I am on my way to handle a fight. Anyway, the reason the dog was barking is there is a bear in the area."
We were going to take a walk up the hill trail but are now rethinking our plan. As Josh knows, I feel a bit sensitive about bears. Lions, rhinos and hippos feel more normal. I might anticipate them or avoid them. Not so with bears.
