A young brown bear stations itself behind several stalks of grass last week between the U.S. Forest Service's Berners Bay cabin and the cabin visitors' means of getting home. The bruin in fact didn't wait for the outgoing tide to leave the boat high and dry. It opted instead to munch on some rye grass along the beach and then ambled off into the forest.
At left, the mark of a size 12-D invites comparison with the bear's paw prints. Reservations for Forest Service and Corps of Engineers cabins can be made online at reserveUSA.com.
