    Certainly not what you expect to happen....but this is part of visiting the wilderness!

    Did the bears look anything like these two? If so, I believe they were looking for picnic baskets.

    I think you mean 'pic-a-nic' baskets!

    Emily: But Bob, what if you're in the woods and you're bitten by a snake? What would you do?

    Bob: Die?

    Emily: Bob, I'm serious! What if you're attacked by a bear?

    Bob: I have to go with "die" again.

    (From the Bob Newhart show circa 1975, from memory).

    First, I'm amazed that a group had the resolve to stand still!!

    Second, sorry, there was some movement, I'm guessing at least a few will had to change their shorts.:)

    I've done a fair amount of camping around black bears but have rarely seen them, plus they are much more docile than a Grizzly.
