Note to hikers in Provo Canyon: This is not BigfootNovember 26, 2012
Assume that thing in the brush is a bear if it looks vaguely like a bear; if you’re filming, do so as you back up, and only through a very long telephoto lens (bears can sprint up to 30 mph; you want a 300-yard head start). A bear can do more damage to you than Big Foot; don’t mess up the bear’s thing with tourists looking for cryptofauna.
Tip of the old scrub brush to Spencer Darrell, one of Our Men in California.

We should go see for ourselves, no?
If you go today, vote before you go. This is one of the areas to be opened to energy exploration — oil and gas drilling or other mining — under Mitt Romney’s “energy plan” and the GOP National Platform.
