Considering I don’t encounter Bears in my day to day activities I think I can be forgiven for initially thinking these were horses, and then large dogs.  Within about 3 seconds it occured to me that I was on a mountainside in Yancey County, North Carolina.   Duh, these must be bears. 

 

 

 They were more afraid of me than I was of them, which is why I couldn’t get a very good picture.
