Bears? Guess I Was Lucky

A friend just sent me this five minutes ago saying, “Thought you would find this sign amusing considering your travel through bear country.”

In fact, I found it amusing enough that I am posting it here. And I don’t mean just the Canadian-speak about the “out of doors.”

Read the last paragraph of the picture on this page.

Hmmm, I saw plenty of bear poop during the Tour Divide, but I really couldn’t tell you if they were from black or grizzly bears. And the bear bell on my handlebars seemed to keep the teddys away, in contrast to fellow racer Mike Dion who encountered three bears in the first 10 days!

Guess I was lucky.

Bear warning.
Bear warning.
