    Wonderful Jörgen, simply wonderful Both the trip concept and the report. But a griz stealthily approaching within 25 yards/meters before fleeing? For me, that would qualify as a OH SH*T moment … I doubt I could unholster, arm and fire bear spray in the amount of time it would have needed to close the gap if it wanted.

    Jim, no if the bear had charged I imagine only Clint Eastwood would have been fast enough. But bears (almost never) attack people that way. To them we are almost never considered to be food.

    Another pleasurable read. Thank so much. Who is Kenneth Grahame? The BPL home page has him down as the writer/submitter.

    No idea, just noted this myself :-) Might be a dummy name from some template that has slipped through. I have asked BPL to change this.

    Kenneth Grahame was an English author, most famous for "The Wind in the Willows" a series of tales about the adventures of anthropomorphised wildlife. Dave

    Well since it is certainly not him is why I asked. The irony of this being in the editor's round table. Good job editor, oh wait….

    I just got a message from BPL. They cannot change the name and put mine there instead because "The database is locked down for the move to the new site". I just hope this will not destroy sales for Mr Grahame's estate ;-)

    But Mole stood still a moment, held in thought. As one wakened suddenly from a beautiful dream, who struggles to recall it, but can recapture nothing but a dim sense of the beauty in it, the beauty! Till that, too, fades away in its turn, and the dreamer bitterly accepts the hard, cold waking and all its penalties.
