Actually, that bear was a brown bear, and she had a cub following her, but it got spooked when I whistled at the mom to get her attention, and then the cub climbed a tree. She entered the water and crossed toward our side, then turned and went back for her cub who slid down the tree and off they went....I'm not sure what I was thinking...whistling at a bear with a cub, for a good picture, but it was pretty exciting! Unfortunately, we were the only campers home at the time to see this up close; everyone was out hiking at 4pm that day.
Being that close to the trash bin, did bring a little noise from time to time, slamming the lid down, but it is a great location for sure in that campground. Second time we had that spot and we did not notice any smell; just the occasional noise when we were home...
