There is a special trail off the Blue Ridge Parkway where bears are seen walking in front of the beautiful Pisgah Inn located between Brevard and Asheville. This scene was taken in mid-August, 2011 as the last of the summer flowers were in bloom. Off scene but to the right is the Pisgah Inn restaurant which overlooks the trail and the valley below. People, myself included, have watched bears just stroll by the windows while eating a meal inside. It is such a gift to see one of the beautiful black bears of North Carolina in such a magical place. This photo was taken with a Nikon cool-pix point and shoot digital camera with one of my own textures added and colors enhanced in PhotoShop.
