Right before we ran...

near Lake George in the eastern Sierra
Mammoth, California

The mama bear said GGGRRRRROOOOOOOWWWWLLLLLL!

We were in the Sierra for the wedding of my friend BootCamp: wedding in the Forest Chapel at 9000 feet; drinks on top of Mammoth Mountain (11,000 feet, where you're already a bit lightheaded); dinner and dancing partway down the mountain at 10,000 feet.

Running from bears at any elevation: priceless.

sounds like some celebration! my boyf would be jealous - for some bizarre reason, one of his goals in life is to see a bear.

I like seeing bears. When I'm in my car...

@ Eco Yogini: those Patagonia dresses are SO cute! Dr. Cowgirl just sent a 'fashion itinerary' for her upcoming wedding weekend, noting that she'd be wearing a Patagonia dress for the welcome BBQ :)

@ Julia: take your BF to Yosemite Valley or Hetch Hetchy - he's sure to see a bear there!

@ LPC: they always seem to be on the -trail-, right in front of me! :)
