Peek-A-Bear

Driving through our neighborhood I noticed a Big Rock on the road. I thought I need to stop and move this before some one comes around a turn and hits it. As I was about to get out of my car my wife stopped me and pointed up into the woods,Bear in the woods in Big Canoe

I looked up and it was Peek-a Bear!!!! This young Bear was peeking out from behind a tree. He and his sibling were playing rolling rocks down the hill. Perhaps he would have sprung out and said the Bear equivalent of Surprise! At that point I would have had the Fred Sanford equivalent of "The Big One!" What a great sight.We know he was a juvenile because he was with his sibling in the distance

Big Canoe BearsNotice in this photo the bear in the back who is the sibling. In the fore ground of the photo is the hiding bear behind the tree you see in the first picture. Think you know what gated communities are all about ? These pictures are in North Georgia's Premier Mountain gated community Big Canoe. Talk to your mountain experts at All Mountain Realty if you are looking for mountain property. Enjoy these photos and our bear experience.
