Getting Ready...

for my trip to Yellowstone. Today my daughter (who is taking me there) e-mailed me this important information:


So I wrote her back and asked if this was in preparation for our trip. Her response - "Well, I was gonna ask you to bring bells and pepper spray"

Oh. My. Goodness.

This is a true story. Back in the day, they fed the bears to bring them in. A park ranger came upon a family who was watching the bears, had left their car as you were not supposed to do, and had smeared their child's face with peanut butter so that they could get a picture of a bear kissing their child.

Painted Promise? Don't do that, okay? It will just make you look like an nincompoop. Carry pepper spray.

I, too, remember the days they encouraged visitors to feed the bears! WOW!
