Bear Country, USA
Rapid City, South Dakota
Late June 2007
We had a lot of fun at Bear Country. When I lived in Rapid City, it was one of the tourist traps I actually recommended.
This was Thomas's first-ever visit. He was excited to see the bears up close and personal.
We weren't expecting to see the bear up close and personal being up close and personal. Every direction we looked, there were bears humping. Thomas laughed hysterically only because I got a little flustered and embarrassed. I wasn't at first, but I'm not kidding when I say everywhere we looked, the bears were busy.
Yeah, this will be a tourist activity that Thomas will never forget.
What's bad is that I'm the one that snapped all the photos.
