[CDT-L] bears

I'm in the middle of reading Herrero's book on bears. It's very good,
albeit a bit graphic. It made me wonder though - do any of you have any
good/bad bear stories? I've had several encounters with black bears - but
never with grizzlies. Last summer in Glacier we went from paranoia (this
was only a couple of weeks after a park employee was eaten by three bears)
to indignation because we didn't see hide nor hair of a bear. So - how
about the rest of you - any encounters?  What is the closest you have been
to a wild grizzly?
