+Forest Engineer & Sunny Daze Posted March 21, 2002 Share Posted March 21, 2002 Wife and I walked in to a cache near Hunt Falls just east of Priest Lake in the Idaho panhandle. On the way back to our car we discovered a black bear in the trail. While we were deciding whether to wait until it moved on or to try to walk through the brush to get past it, the bear pulled a mountain ash tree down onto the trail. It then started to leisurely strip off and eat the red berries while we waited and watched a safe (we hoped) distance up the trail. After what seemed a very long time, Mr. (or Miss) Bear finished its meal and slowly ambled off the trail and down the slope. We somewhat fearfully (maybe the bear would circle back) hastened to our car, arriving at it without further excitement. Barrat Quote Link to comment
