This time I did see a bear! Jamie and I were on the evening ride tonight, and we saw mule deer, elk, coyotes, and a bear. We were about halfway done, when my horse Rocky pricked his ears up, and stopped, Jamie came up on Chank (Canadian Hank, shortened to Chank). I managed to get Rocky going, and I was just saying that there had to be something as all the horses were paying attention, and one of the guests said..."there is a bear" There was a black bear about twenty feet away, on a hill. It looked like a young one. It just watched us, and the horses watched it. I have seen bears before, so it was not that big of a deal for me, but Jamie was excited (she is from Australia). Then after all that we had seen, we did not get a tip at all!! And they were from the U.S (Usually they tip more). Gas prices are definately affecting tips this year.
