Remember when I said that RV camping is full of adventures? Well, this was a first!
Gary and I were reading by the stream next to our RV when we heard loud gun shots just down the creek from us.
We didn’t really know what it was, but thought it might be a vehicle backfiring. Later in the day, we found out that a black bear had come down from the mountains right above the campground. The park rangers had spotted it several times before and had “urged” it back up the mountain. Apparently, it had gotten braver and braver and much more aggressive. When they couldn’t get it to leave (and, it was trying to get into an RV door), they shot it. This made us sad, but grateful that we are so well protected. Do I have to tell you what I would have done had it walked up on us??
We closed down Red River last night by listening to great music and visiting with friends. Even though, we haven’t seen these people since last year’s festival, it still reminds me of a family reunion – sharing pictures, stories, and travels from recent months.
Today, we will be listening to lots of great music, eating chili and barbeque at the cook-off, visiting with locals, closing down Red River (again), and watching for BEARS!
Until then . . . carry on!
