Can your pounding brain break through your skull? Can your pounding heart break through your chest? So I'm backing up, quickening the pace, but can't resist. I snap the shutter at my waist, hoping the bear is in frame (see him on the path there).

SNAP. The bear raises himself UP and takes two Bounding strides in my direction. WHOooooow. Here's me: no no no no I'm not no going no no to get mauled by no no no no a bear point four miles from no no no the no parking lot no no that's just not no going to happen no no no no.

All this thought in one gasping breath.

Then the bear seems to lose interest and lopes off into the meadow and I sit down on a log, listening, intent, waiting.
