[at-l] Best Bear Tales...was Grizzlies on Cell Phones.
Hard to pick my best bear story....
OK...there were three of us, plus my best traildog,
taking a break near a trout creek. They whipped
out their fly gear and the dog and I wandered upstream
another 50-60 feet. I lay on a ledge with my hurtin feet
dangling in the creek, watching the sky.
Suddenly, in my field of view, I see my dog....standing
up on his hind legs as if he were imitating a prarie dog.
He struggled slightly for balance but held like that. His
gaze was locked across the creek. I followed his gaze
and saw the bear also standing just the other side of
the water. He was better at it than my dog.
The bear took a couple steps closer, into the creek.
Poor Dingo was already at the edge of the ledge and
couldn't advance in return. I felt left out, so I too
stood on two feet. There we were.....three species, in
the ulimate stand off. Just majical. The bear broke just
a split second before Dingo. I won. We all sat back
down and watched the trout rise.
