That is of course until we heard the jaw popping and teeth chattering of a black bear that was feeling threatened by our near presence. What was he doing awake? Didn’t he know it was time for him to be in a deep, long sleep? It certainly added pep to our step as we quickly backed away and headed back from whence we came.
