the best and the worst might of been the same day. It was on the A/T. The first hour I saw 11 deer. Then I heard a noise and saw a baby bear coming down a tree. At the base of the tree was 2 baby bears. The mother was on the other side of the trail


I am looking to meet people who enjoy the outdoors and to make new friends.
