"Originally planned to do the class three ridge of father dyer and crystal peak loop, but on the way up I was just hiking quietly when I heard what sounded like a big animal. I'm along crystal creek at this point and in a marshy area so I assume it's a moose. I continue, making sure to kick some rocks around to make noise and as I scan the area I see two big ears. At first I think oh crap a mountain lion. Then it moves to the left to get a better view of me and I realize it's a huge (brown) black bear! Once I realize I'm looking at a big bear just off to the side of the next section of trail I'" - tylerburg, Aug 31, 2015
