I saw this same bear last Monday. And he is BIG! I was walking back to my truck parked at the end of the road at Elkmont and about 250 yards before I got back to the parking lot he crossed the trail. He just abled across and didn't pay any attention to me but 35 yards was too close for comfort. Everyone I have told this story to have said that all bears look big when you are that close to them in the woods but I have seen other bears in the woods and this one is by far the biggest. I couldn't help but think that if I hadn't stopped to take a sip of water or cast a time or two more before leaving, he would have been right on top of me when he crossed the trail. Scary stuff. I'm buying some bear mace.
