First Bear
02-OCT-2013 Sandi Whitteker

First Bear

Lake Tahoe, CA

This is my first encounter in the wild with a bear, and he started coming right at us. Kept
clicking away, but we were pooping our pants. He finally turned and walked away. We have bears
that come down to eat the salmon in a creek at Lake Tahoe. Yep, Lake Tahoe has a salmon run.

other sizes: small medium original
