There's a bear out there! Somewhere. But I didn't see it.
I am in Tennessee with my son, hoping to head home this weekend, so while I am here I have been taking advantage of the town's linear trail. It is four miles long and has several parking areas where you can pick up the trail. Last week I walked the trail close to the college and an elementary school. In other words, more populated. Later that same day I received a message from the school that a black bear was spotted on the Green Valley side of the trail. Wide open spaces, few houses. Needless to say I didn't walk after that.
This morning I decided to walk the Green Valley side of the trail. I started at the middle of the trail, at the two mile mark. Here are the sign that greeted me when I got out of my car:
Too bad bears can't read signs or they wouldn't be on the trail
Truth be told, I didn't care if there were bears (I saw people on the trail). It was a beautiful morning to walk and the views of the Great Smokey Mountains are spectacular. Just see for yourselves...
I wish you all a blessed day! Hope you don't meet any bears today.
