If an experience is amazing enough to be "once in a lifetime," I want to do it every year.

Cor! He looked like he was barreling right down on you. It would have been a scary few minutes!

Awesome.

Cracking angle on this photo: was it just walking slowly or picking up speed?

Awesome photo, that is one very healthy, well fed Bear. Has me reaching for the bear-spray just looking at it  :o. Do you mind being a bit more specific about location? I'm guessing this is a pretty rare sighting "up your way"?
