We were looking for a particular trail that would lead us to the top of a peak, where some fossilized trees were still accessible to the bravest hikers. 🔝
As we were driving, no sign of a trail in sight, we decided to stop at the first agglomeration of cars we noticed. 🚗🚙🚘
"There was a grizzly on the right side of this peak !!"
"Really?! I just saw a brown bear behind the trees on the left !"
As usual, people had gathered to observe some distant bears through their binoculars. 🐻
Jack turned to me with the childish eyes he gets when an idea emerges in his brain... I knew I was in trouble. 😒
"I can see the trail, right in the middle ! Let's go" he said.
And off we went... Hiking between a grizzly and a brown bear with no evidence that our trail was even there.
