We luckily did not encounter a bear, but we did encounter bear tracks

Beartooth is a nature-lover’s paradise. There is nothing commercial about it. At about the half-way point along the 69-mile highway, there is a general store and a campground; otherwise, total wilderness. There are hiking trails galore, streams, lakes, falls, mountain peaks, glaciers. I bought a great trail guide before we left home, and we took advantage of some very beautiful hikes. This region did not get its name for nothing – we were in bear country, and there were signs everywhere reminding us of that fact. We invested in a can of bear deterrent spray, and took it with us wherever we went. Fortunately, we never met a bear while hiking (whew!)
