...We hit the road for Terrace. The road from Prince Rupert to Terrace runs parallel to a river for 150km, and it weaves through the mountains. It is one of the prettiest roads I have been on in my life. As well, we saw two bears on the side of the road. Our plan had been to just stop at a rest area in the middle of nowhere, but our two black-bear sighting spooked us. The first bear was great though. He was just sitting in the ditch, like a dog, chewing on green grass and counting cars as they passed. He was all black but he had some white on his chin. The bear looked funny and like the kind you might want to stop to scratch under the chin. We decided not to though. The bear did not even move as we passed by. He was just chewing on grass, like a playful dog. I slowed down to yell at him, “Tell your friends we mean not harm and that we are coming through.” The second bear was fully black, and he was in the ditch in front of us, but took off into the trees as we got closer. Since that bear was scared of us, I slowed down the yell at him, “Heck yeah, we are scary. We have bear-spray and we will kick your ass.” That bear seemed to understand and get away from us as soon as he could. He could sense out bad-ass-ness.
Not Larry mentioned after the second bear that she did not want to sleep in the rest area about 2kms down the highway. She said, “Don’t put that on me because I know you do not want to sleep there either!” She was right, I was also spooked. We headed to a campground... .
