American Black Bear

Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Clingman's Dome

2009 Photos May NOT be used without my express consent.
My hubby and I were lucky enough to spot not ONE but two bears on our trip to the Great Smoky Mtns. National Park. This is the second one we saw. Both bears were on the drive to Clingman's Dome and it was extremely foggy so I had to time my shots to get a few pictures so you could actually see the bears.

Both bears (we saw at different times) were digging up grubs for breakfast and he's walking and eating his finds in this photo.

Better eating his finds than pursuing YOU!
