Our Special Fun in Tennessee

Updating our blog, because I don't think Aric ever got around to sharing what we saw at the park.  First, I have to ask people who live in Tennessee to explain the above picture to me.  In North Carolina we saw people riding in the back of trucks.  I don't mean sitting in the back of trucks.  I mean couches and lawn chairs were in the back of trucks, with people riding in them. 

In Tennessee, we saw this happen though.  More than once.  Vans driving down the road with doors open and people hanging out.  I don't get it, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Ok, now to the fun.  This is what we encountered at the park.
Those were Nathan's shots.  He had a great view because he was very close to this guy.  I won't tell you how nervous that made me.  I won't tell you what I had to say about that on the ride home.  I'll just say it was an amazing experience to be that close to this creature.  And next time, I hope Nathan does not have my camera in his hands.  It would be a real shame to lose both him and my camera.

Nathan had your camera when he got that close to that bear? I'd have had a heart attack! Seriously, he should know better than to endanger the camera!

Just kidding - I'm glad he got those shots & stayed safe.

And I have no idea what those people are doing in the van...
