That bear was in Cades Cove, and fortunately, he didn't eat me. When I first saw him, he was up in the cherry tree. I was kinda surprised at how something that big could jump around from limb to limb. Anyhow, we were taking pictures of him along with a couple dozen other people. He ate his fill of cherries, and I guess needed a drink, so he eased down the tree. There was a whole bunch of people in front of me. Suddenly I felt sort of lonly at the front of the pack of people. That one with him looking at me was taken at about 20 feet. That was the last one before my cautious retreat. At least I was pretty close to the truck.
