When Tarno and I ran and down up Lady Mac a few years ago the person we were running from (he has a place in Canmore) wouldn’t let us split up if we didn’t have bear spray.

Speaking of bear spray. A student of mine was working at an Ontario provincial park and they were discussing bear safety and bear spray at the amphitheater one evening when a family asked how often they should spray their kids so bears don’t attack. Yikes!

Yes, they were using bear spray like it was a repellant. Poor kids. Luckily no burns/

!!! Wow. We are carrying bear spray and making lots of noise. The noise doesn’t always help though. We ate across the street from this downtown restaurant last night but we missed Sunday’s excitement. The bear was as shocked as the people were.
