Mark Trail, 6/27/12
You always hear that you are not supposed to climb a tree when a bear is chasing you (you are not supposed to run either, but somehow, Liz and Mike, after splitting up, have regrouped and found the same easily climbable dead tree). However, based on some Google, I've learned that black bears are great climbers but grizzlies, not so much. So maybe Liz and Mike are going to be OK (cupcake*). And we've also learned that Mike dropped the gun so that Mark Trail could shoot the bear.
*Note: My daughter asked me to write "cupcake" here.
