Grizzly on My Trail

Look closely and you will see that a grizzly stepped over my own prints; it did this not long after I had passed by. Fortunately, the bear was traveling the other way.

Absaroka Range, WY (Brown Basin)-- July 2007

Damn.

Would have been a bit creepier if he'd been heading in the same direction.

Re: Damn.

And I hadn't yet found a store that sold pepper spray! Some hikers I met on the way down told me about the tracks and got a kick out of my widening eyes.

Kind of the same creepy thing

I had this happen while hiking into Red Eagle Lake. We met a pair of hikers and 10 munites late we saw their tracks covered by a set if griz tracks.

Re: Kind of the same creepy thing

It must happen a lot in bear country. It's no surprise, really, that bears would use trails for easier going. But yeah, it was a little unsettling; at least the bear was going the other way in my case.
