Went out this morning and found a nice big pretty black bear. Grabbed my stuff and laced up my boots and took off after it. Sometimes im my own worst enemy. Still wonder why I keep telling myself its so fun. These mountains around here are BIG. Needless to say I did have a great time. I just couldn't close the gap fast enough. The bears are out and about and ready to challenge us. I know what I will be doing for the near future. Good luck to everyone.
