Ascent Trip Report

Started hike just before sunrise from gate at fish hatchery. While walking along hatchery road next to road spotted a Black Bear 300-350 feet up road, watched as it slowly made its way towards me, stopped 75-100 feet from me, then clawed post on side of road to mark its territory, then disappeared into woods. 20 minutes further up hatchery road heard a bear huffing as it ran away 50 feet away on a side spur, but did not see. At end of hatchery road at trailhead saw a moose.
