While we were camping in Angeles Nation Forest, we came across a few bear tracks! We happened to pass by a tree that had claw marks going up the trunk. The other 2 were prints in the ground that made it clear we were in bear territory! Now all I’m missing is a picture of an actual bear! Its on my nature-spotting bucket list!
Do you have any cool bear pics? Email them to girlycamping@Hotmail.com and I may feature them in an upcoming post!
A “grizzly” situation to be in, if you aren’t prepared.
not bear prints – but cougar..

For one hiker in NJ recently, taking pixs of a bear was the last thing he ever did. Here in central PA, the black bear population is growing along with development decreasing their habitat; husband and I have taken to hiking with bear repellant. One more thing to carry, altho’ relatively light. But, you know the old saying: “I’d rather have it and not need it… “
How exciting, and terrifying!
A few years ago we were camping in West Virginia, and woke up to find cougar tracks through our campsite. Our dog was camping with us, and didn’t even make a sound. He has since been fired from his position as our head of security.

Oh, how exciting! That top one is a great photo! I’ve seen lots of black bears on my hikes in Northern California, but never got a shot because in those days I wasn’t so adept at having the camera at the ready. I’ve taken photos of bear prints too, which are wonderful, but just not the same thing as getting to see one. I hope when you spot your bear, you can get your camera out before she runs away!
