Went to a different road system today. And found these tracks.

Went to a different set of roads off the same main line. Walked about twenty yards and was "attacked" by a very "injured" forest grouse. The dang thing was flopping, strutting like a turkey, and making an awful noise. At the same time I looked down at my feet and saw three chicks running around. I could have caught all three. I tried to get a pic instead. The chick is the yellow spot that appears when the picture is zoomed in.

Got to a fork on this spur and was greeted with a commotion in the woods and a guttural. Oof oof. Oof. Mother bear stayed put at thirty yards. Twenty yards into the brush. Cub took off. I observed for a minute and began to back out. Got visual confirmation of the yearling cub twenty yards into the woods on the other side of the road. Very awesome. First encounter up close with a bear.

Wow, exciting day in the woods. Very cool.
I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I'm not!

Funny, I had the same thing happen to me, and some of my pictures almost look the same...

Two different bears. One much larger. Both have similar poses.
