The bear went over the get away from me

Magnet #6 - The Bears at Grandfather Mountain

I have an obsession with bears. I want to see one in real life. No. I'm serious. I know they're scary. I'm not lookin' to make friends, people. I just want to see one. Walking in its natural environs.

So, here's the issue. Whenever I go to nature (wherever it may be), a high alert rumbles through the valley saying, "CALLING ALL BEARS, EVACUATE THE PREMISES, JOY IS A-COMING."

And then, I never see one, even with HOURS spent looking out of windows along the way. And I mean - hours in Montana. Hours in the mountains of North Carolina *points at magnet*. Hours in California. Hours in New Jersey. (Shut up, they have a bear problem there.)

This magnet was from Grandfather Mountain, NC, where they have a few wildlife habitats (read: zoo) with a couple of pent-up bears. (Hated it.)

Alas, my bearquest continues.
Pin It!

Well, that's probably true. It's like finding the Holy Grail and finding out it's's probably the search that's fascinating to me. Heh.
