Intervals on the north end of my Vancampens map. Really fun terrain. For the most part it's quite open and runnable. Only a few parts that have enough blueberry or mountain laurel to become truly unusable.
I stopped at each water stop marker on the control description. Except for 12, because I thought I had to stop at 11.
So, while I was waiting at 7 I saw a huge pile of bear scat. Never seen a pile that large before. Then I turned and saw another. And then I continued to spot more and more piles. Then I saw an area of flattened leaves at the base of a tree. So I guess I popped into someone's bedroom.
When I was entering 11 I saw a little bear, looked like a yearling. I'm not really all that concerned about black bears. But since NJ made it illegal to hunt black bears on public land last year, I'm a little worried about a ballooning population that will lead to lots more uncomfortable human-bear encounters.
Obviously this case is different because I was running through its home. But if there are 15 more around me in a close area, then I'll probably start to get a little nervous.
