I have yet to see a bear in Summit County, but this picture proves that they are closer to me than I realize. This was taken by a Property Manager, about 1/2 mile from my office. The other day there was a report that a bear was roaming inside the Silver Mill underground garage. That's where I park everyday. The garbage containers they had moved and dumped over are about 20 feet from my office door and where I park! Now, I'm not saying I would have liked to come face-to-face with a hungry bear in an enclosed space like an underground parking garage, but I have to say I'm a little bummed I didn't get to see it. I'm sure that eventually my chance to see one will come. It's probably best that my first bear sighting didn't happen when I potentially could have been between it and it's food!
