I have not written anything in a while. Been busy. I have to delete a lot of the personal and enlightenment posts in this website, maybe on the end of December. Going to make it more like a travel blog or hiking blog.
Anyway, I saw a bear last hike. Fate is on a roll. I think it all started with the cows in Wawayanda. Fate allowed us to play with those cows or take pictures with them. Sam’s point was nice and I already talked about that. Mohonk had some new things going on too on the weekend that we went there. They had musicians in the huts and in the skytop tower. They had opera singers and violins and everything. If you do not want to hike, you can just look at the views while listening to classical music. It was nice.
So in this hike, we saw a bear. We were at the right time and at the right place to see this bear. We most likely only had 3 minutes of a window to see him. A lot of things had to happen. My hiking members had to go to the bathroom so they went to the store first. There was no way to go across the bridge so we just went back. Some got lost on the bridge which was probably my fault because I didn’t wait for them. I didn’t know they were taking pictures. The hike started late. We had to have lunch at the pond instead of the view point. At the lunch spot, I had to go to the bathroom. So I was looking for one. I headed in the direction of the bear. The hiking members were most likely looking at me and thinking where was I going. While they were looking at me, they saw the bear.
They screamed at me to say that there was a bear. A bear could kill people. When I saw the bear, my reaction was to take out my camera and go near it. Probably not what my members were expecting me to do. I was going near it very slowly so that it will not get startled and attack me. Some of the hiking members had a different idea. They ran after the bear. They zoomed past me. I had to ran after them just to make sure nothing bad happens. The bear was very startled and afraid of us. So we chased it lol. We took pictures. It went back to the forest though.
Anyway, a lot of things happened just so we can be at the right place and right time to see this bear lol. The people who took pictures of the bear were very happy and they have this high on their demeanor. I cannot explain it but they were happy. Others were happy too because we got pictures of the bear. It was a great hike, lots of fun and we all had a good time.
