Bear encounter at Bear Country

The scary story about the bear above was actually my encounter too. Because I just happen to be the daughter of the person who made black-hills-trip-planner. And this was a scary thing to happen... especially when you are 6 years old. I was sitting in the back seat behind the driver looking peacefully out the window at the bears. And my father was on the phone. Then all of a sudden from behind us a bear comes up so I look at him closely, Then he stands up and leans against the car, he wasn't damaging the car, the car wasn't shaking at all, he was just getting a good sniff. But what can I say? I panicked!I started yelling "bear" over and over again so my mom looked back, saw the bear and also started yelling floor it again and again so my Dad floored it forward. But don't worry it did not hurt the bear at all.
