Lyons and Tired and Bears, Oh My!
My family and I went hiking up at Hanging Rock State Park today. We took a grueling hike on the easy trail to the upper falls and spent some time enjoying the waterfall. We then hiked back, got in our vehicle, and drove over to the wooded picnic area (about 100 meters) and got out our packed lunch. As we entered the picnic area, we were greeted by a sign that said some black bears had been sighted recently and to use caution. We were fairly confident that we wouldn't be bothered, however, and sat down near the trash cans to eat our tuna sandwiches and berries. We finished up with some delicious honeycomb.
