More Bear Stories

From a neighbor in The Meadows:

"I went for a hike Friday night about 6:30. I headed up El Prieto Rd and was nearing the intersection were you can go right to Millard campground or left to Brown Mtn Rd (where there are lots of bees buzzing). There was a BIG bear that had just crossed the trail and was in the brush on the right about 30 feet from me. I heard the noise and saw him at the same time. He was huge! My eyes got as big as saucers. I watched him as I slowly backed away, he watched me but didn’t make a move. After about 30 seconds he turned and looked toward the canyon and then headed off. I decided it was a good time to turn back for home. He wasn’t scared of me but I was a bit unnerved by him!"
