Black Bears In TN!

Okay, I know you have all been waiting on a post with pictures of our dark mysterious visitor that kept coming to our cabin... So here are some.

The night before we left we were all sitting in the living room of our cabin when we hear a BANG we looked at each other yelled BEAR and rushed to go take a look. Sure enough there was a bear running away from our trash bin. So we rushed onto our balcony out back to see if we could see him. Here is what we saw. :-)

We watched the trees for a long time it was really dark by the time he came back out of the trees. Here is a picture of him standing directly below our balcony.
The next morning, Dad opened the door to try and get us in the van and there was our bear standing right in front of the door.... I don't think I've ever seen my Dad shut a door so fast in his life. He was slightly stunned by our visitor. So... We alll rushed back onto the balcony hoping for better pictures since there was a little bit more light now. :-)

Here, I was feeling slightly vulnerable and decided not to stay on the bottom balcony this close to him... Then we scared him away so we could get in our van and leave.

We all loved getting to see "our" bear though. :-)

I hope you've enjoyed the posts from our trip! This was the last one!
