What is your craziest hiking memory (or "have you ever been chased by a bear")

I've had a few, but I rather mention my most memorable experience. I was backpacking with a friend of mine at Isle Royale National Park in Aug '06. On the fourth day on the island we had set up camp at Moskey Basin. After dinner, my friend and I decided to go for an evening hike. About a mile into the hike I noticed movement along the trail about 30 feet in front of us. My friend and I stopped immediately to discern what had appeared in front of us. Given the size of the animal I initially thought that it was a moose calf, but I quickly corrected this assessment by noticing the animal had a bushy tail. I immediately cried out, "it's a Wolf!". Right in front of us were at least three wolves. We watch the wolves pace up and down the trail in front of us, curious about who we were. In our excitement we had almost forgotten that we had brought our cameras. I and my friend were able to snap off a few photos before the wolves found a break in the brush along the side of the trail and disappeared into the woods. It was an amazing experience, and to this day my friend and I feel very blessed to have seen them. There's more to this story, and when I see you on the trail I'll tell you more about it, if you're interested. (Oh yeah, I included one of the photos I took of the wolves in my profile pictures)

Introduction

Hey all! I'm back and ready to hit the trail again with the Tri-State Hiking Club. Looking forward to seeing everyone on the trail.
