I’m laying in my tent right now heading into day 3 of an adventure in my local mountains and I’m trying to sleep after a long day of elevation gain. My brain and ears won’t ever shut off.
*snap* must be a bear! *rustle* yep! that’s a bear alright!
The truth is that it’s probably just a skunk, deer, badger or the one the most evil of all… wind. Last night my tent flaped in the wind and it sounded like someone walking up to my tent, I freak of course. “Shooo bear!” I yell haphazardly into the darkness.
Amazing when you’re alone, in the dark and exposed in the elements what your brain will tell your inner caveman.
Bears! Bears everywhere!
