While returning from Farnum peak, I was reclimbing the slopes of Little Puma. Well it turns out that perhaps it should be called "Little Bears." I encountered a mother black bear and her cubs. Although they were a 100 yards away, she charged me. I immediately started in another direction and fortunately she was just being over protective and stopped short of me. Needless to say, I was uncomfortable the rest of the way while trying to circumvent Little Puma on the other side.
