This past Sunday my wife, daughter and son-in-law went up to Glacier National Park before it closed for the season.


We took a snowy, slippery trip up Going To The Sun Highway to Logan Pass, on the Continental Divide. The visitors center was open at the pass, but no running water. Porta-Potties were the "in thing" at this time of year. As we headed out back of the visitors center to the "boardwalk" trail to Hidden Lake, a loud "Bam, Bam" invaded the quiet of the area. Then another "Bam, Bam", and several people around us hit the deck instantly. Jerry, my son-in-law, and I just stayed standing up and were pointing off to the South about 100 yards out.

One women was screaming that terrorists were in the area and aonther guy was yelling about the lack of gun control in National Parks. What followed was kind of comical:

Lady screaming: "Why aren't you guys taking cover?"

Jerry: Nothing's going to happen. Those were just Flash Bangs that the rangers use to scare off bears."

Guy from Chicago: "What's a flash Bang?"

Bob"Okay...stand up and look over there. That's what the noise was about."

About 100 yards off were two Grizzly Bears, minding their own business, eating fresh Huckleberries and a few Viking Fans.

Bob: "A flash-bang is a dummie shell that makes lots of noise to scare off the bears when they get to close to humans. Kinda like watching "The First 48" TV show. You know, the bad guys are holed up in some shack and they throw in a flash bang to get them out."

Chicago Guy: "But what if the bears start to charge this way?"

Bob: "Then you get to see how fast you can run."

Screaming Woman: "How come you know so much about this?"

Jerry: " We live out here and we've had Grizzlies in our yards several times. You just get used to it after awhile."

Bob: "Yeah, and they really are cute when they're small. Kinda tough to potty train though."

With that the people around us returned somewhat to normal and we enjoyed the rest of the day in snowy Glacier National Park.

The more a person is use to the noise, the less jumpy they are when they hear one.

And Bears are a reason, I try to always have another person with me when I am in the woods. A person who I am sure cannot run as fast as me.

You are absolutely on target. Always get someone slower than you between the bear and you. It also helps if they are smelling of fresh fruit, meat, or veggies.

This time of year we worry about the grizzlies, mountain lions (all year) and wolves. Had two wolves prowling around our street just last week.

sounds like you live in a nice area - most we get in london is some foxes - had a nice little den near us; but the landlord tore up their den and now they are gone or dead :(
pretty soon there will be no more animals left; but in zoos and food farms

The problem with really good irony is that you are never quite sure if the writer is being ironic or not.

Damn fine ironic post, Kevin.

None of the above. It wouldn't have been a wasted vote. Obama and Romney -- Those were the wasted votes.

I was just thinking when reading what you wrote in the other thread, THIS thread was THE ONE - pristinely free of politics. Then you go and stir the pot with a post like this.

I second what Wade said, it's hard to tell what is irony or sarcasm, and what is not. Fortunately, for any little old ladies lurking around, I don't really have strong feelings one way or another about guns.
