Just Had to Share This!!

We have gone to the mountains for many years now. We have been in the mountains of North Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia, etc. I ALWAYS look for bears. I PRAY to see bears. I had never seen a live bear in the wild as an adult. Every time we would go to the Smokey Mountain National Park, I just KNEW that I would see a bear. No bears.... My Sister-In-Law, Debbie, went to Smokey Mountain National Park two years ago for the first time. What did she see? BEARS!! She saw a Momma bear and I believe three cubs. I was SO jealous. Well, this weekend we went to get our puppy in Virginia. We had to really hit it hard coming home because we had somewhere to be late this afternoon, but we meandered there on the way. It was just Michael and I and we both LOVE the mountains. We love to drive the Blue Ridge Parkway, but had never been on Skyline Drive. So, we decided to hit at least part of it. We were on there from about 5PM until after 8PM. All of the deer were coming out to feed. They were so tame and would just stand there a few feet away and let you take pictures and talk to them. Then what did my wondering eyes see???? But a Momma bear and her two cubs crossing the road in front of us. We took the video below of them. You hear me talking to Debbie, even though she was not with us. I will share puppy pictures and other pictures from the trip late tomorrow. I just had to share my video. =)

I think you are probably one of the few people to say, "Thank you God, I saw a bear." =o)

LOL! That sounds like something I would say, from the safety of the car... Glad you made it back safely. :-D

Yeah Marci ! God is faithful and hears our prayers. You remind me of Melissa, she prays to see a Moose. So glad you were able to share a video clip with us

How exciting Marci! They say the bears are coming out more because of the freeze there is not as many berries in the woods for them to eat. I'm so glad you got to see one with her cub.
