That's pretty cool. A rabbit was exciting as it ever got here.

local thing made the national news...

Thatś a stretch of BRP real close to where we´ve been living, head that way a lot for points north to trailheads. Shutting that stretch down will certainly piss off leaf lookers for the fall colors, it has been a really good year for that.

Maybe being inconvenienced can teach some of them to fucking yell at idiots trying to interact with young bears.

Had a conductor try to feed a bear that was lounging about a hundred yards from our railyard office.

He walked toward the bear (did I mention he was an idiot?), and offered it a couple of granola bars.

The bear came over to where the granola bars were on the ground, nibbled at one, sniffed at the other and walked away.

I told the conductor that even the bears aren't hungry enough to eat the health food crap he brings to work.

Eventually, the conductor moved on to another company. He thought Trump was good, vaccines were a lie, and DeSantis is the best politician out there (did I mention he was an idiot?).

These are hard to explain situations.

FL found pics of the young BRP bear...

Don´t know how long it´ll take that little guy to give up on the free food overlook. The park service will likely determine it has to euthanize him if nothing changes, looks like he´s on his own.

Lane Pinnacle itself is nearby and way overhead from that overlook, here´s a good shot from up there recently, BRP (section now closed) is visible in the shadow...
