Drove to Tofino and back last night (yes, in one night.. kinda ridiculous, but it was our only chance to see a visiting cousin from Ontario).. ANYWAYS.

Saw this bear on the side of the road, I'm kinda choked that I didn't get a chance to take a *nice* picture.. just had to shoot out the passenger window as we were on the twisty road to Tofino, at the bottom of a hill with potential traffic coming up behind us.. and the camera was on some strange manual settings that I didn't manage to change before quickly snapping away...

This is with NO zoom, we were literally 5-6 feet from the bear, and he didn't move.. just chilled there and ate some branches. I even made some noise at him, hoping he would stand up.. but he was just like.. "move along, tourist"

enjoy the pic!

As we continued, less than 100m up the road, there were two foreign girls (german? swedish? ja ja ja...) setting up camp, and cooking their dinner next to a lake, I felt obliged to turn around and warn them there was a bear so close! Needless to say, they were a bit suprised!
