Yesterday was the ninth annual crew pumpkin carving contest. The crew members that wish to participate get to carve a pumpkin for dinner on Halloween. The guests are the judges. The crew member that receives the most votes get to sleep in one morning.
We have had a bear that has been coming through camp during the early evening. We think he has an ear tag, which means he has been an issue before. The park service asked us to put the bear trap out and see if we could catch him. They would then hike up and check him out and possible relocate him. Chrissy, our enthusiastic crew member, was super excited about the possibilities of seeing a bear up close. We thought we would play a little joke on her. We told her we caught the bear. Play the video and you will see what happened next.
