On a Bear Hunt

We were told there were bears ahead in a tree up the trail.... that we probably shouldn't go there. WHAT?? A chance to see a bear and we shouldn't go there?
They were up a tree.
And we thought there were only two cubs, 
so we were especially cautious that a mother may be lurking nearby.
And this little baby bear couldn't figure out what the fuss was about
so he played that he was the bear and tried to eat me - complete with growling sounds!

We watched a young couple stroll past the tree.
They would not have noticed the bears had we not pointed them out!

when we saw that they walked passed the tree with no ill effects we edged in a little closer,
and we made the discovery that the momma bear was up there, too.
It was a good day for a bear hunt.
