Bear Essentials

June 29  an employee, Sam Geesaman,  at the Omni Mount Washington Resort went outside to get a picture of the sunrise but instead he got a picture of a full grown black bear holding onto a rail on the veranda and looking for all the world like an out of town guest. The photo was taken around 5 a.m. and Sam said the bear moved along after he clapped his hands and stomped his foot.  A close encounter that ended well for both Sam and the bear.  New Hampshire Wildlife officials say this year is the busiest for bear encounters since 2014.  The picture is priceless…the rest of the story can be found here
