|Yooper fire starters|
After our hike, we stopped off at the Forest Glen General Store to rest our feet. Cool, old fashioned general store. They even have Yooper fire starters! Of course, we bought a couple! We got a snack, then sat out on the porch for a bit, and talked bear with the owner. We can't talk moose, because there just don't seem to be very many in the area. We haven't seen a single moose sign anywhere in this part of the U.P. But we have seen moose tracks! That's moose tracks ICE CREAM! My favorite! Ok, back to the bear. The owner has personally checked in 18 bear since Sept. 18th, when the season first started. You multiply that by the number of taverns and sportsmens' locations that can check in bear and you start to realize there are a LOT of bear in the woods up here! We've asked a lot of people, do you see bear like you see deer in the woods? And they say, (fortunately for us), no, you don't. Whew! I guess that means we're on for another hike tomorrow, er, Eldy, maybe a bike ride instead?.....
