... drive. We were lucky enough on the way to see a black bear run across in front of us, and Barrie, sitting in the front with the driver managed to get a photo of it! We arrived back at the bus to find our driver and group had left and another bus and driver had waited with his group of not- so- happy looking passengers for us.
