The day use park at meeks bay was very nice. The bathrooms were super clean and the staff is very friendly.
We got back to camp and made some dinner. It was getting dark and we had our first bear encounter of the night. Unfortunatly i didn't get any good photos or video. The other campers were amusing me in there reactions to the bear. I have seen many bears in my time and I dont freak out when i see them anymore. lol, i actually was chasing one with my camera trying to get a good shot. As soon as people saw the bear they all started screaming and yelling "run a bear..... RUN!" FYI dont run from a bear. Shortly after a ranger came around telling everyone there were reports of a man with a rifle. Some idiot who probably would try to shoot the bear miss and hit an innocent camper.
The campground started to relax and then there were two more bears. Again i tried to film but got nothing but hilarious audio of the campers. After all this I was ready for bed. This evening was even colder than the previous so I decided to sleep in the trailer. Which was also a good idea because people continued screaming and yelling throughout the night.
