I once had a bear encounter in Algonquin Park. I was in a tent when I heard the sniffing of a big snout and could see the tent wall being pushed in by it. My teeth chattered just like in the cartoons!
You may think it’s strange, but I do want to face my fear and visit the Great Bear Rainforest sometime. With any luck I’d see a Spirit Bear. As long as I can keep my teeth quiet, I’m sure I’ll be fine.
