Each summer, our family would return to the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania. We might spot a black bear sometime during our stay. One might ramble across my grandmother’s field or be spotted in a forest. Just before sunset, it was hard to tell if the shape was really a bear.
Once, while walking deep in the woods, we spotted a large black bear with cubs. I was hoping that she wouldn’t spot us. We walked three miles out of our way to get back home.
