Black bear on the Rail Trail

Meanwhile, in Vestal.

I was finishing up a workout along the rail trail and I got a quick drink at the Coal House. A gentleman came in screaming about a bear about 1/4 mile down the way. I ran out and jogged down the trail and was able to catch one of the pictures. The other picture was when he was trying to get back but got stuck by the parking lot.

Awesome capture. Just a tad too close for comfort. So who left their Pick-a-nick basket unattended?
