I hiked 4 miles in the rain tonight at dusk hoping to see wildlife in the Bangor City Forest. Throughout the hike, I had my waterproof Fujifilm camera ready in the event that I stumbled upon something. I crisscrossed the forest on minor trails, hoping that staying on less traveled paths would increase my chances of seeing wildlife. Towards the end of the hike I rounded a bend and there, around 30 yards in front of me on the larger Tripp Road trail, stood a bear. Sadly, it took a second or two for my brain to register the fact that there was a bear in front of me, and in that time, the bear calmly walked back into the thick woods, before I had the chance to take its picture.
