Black bear

Whistler, BC

Dad and I are current driving to Whistler for my cousin’s wedding. About 10 minutes ago as we are driving along the Sea to Sky highway I had the opportunity to yell out something that I can’t say I’ve ever had to before: “Bear!” A wayward black bear was walking up the side of the road– apparently to take a look before heading back into the woods. Of course we didn’t know that at the time and since we really didn’t want to slam into a bear, there was a bit of quick braking.

I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a bear in person in the wild before. Of course that is probably a good thing.
