Describe what you heard / found / saw
it was very dark, only light was from the moon. We smelled something I had never smelled before ornsince. We heard something rustling in the bushes. My friend saw what he said was a bear crouching nearnthe stream on the other side upstream from us. I turned around to see the thing he was refering to looknat us for a little while. It then stood up and crossed the 30ft stream with one step in the middle then itnwas on the other side. It seemed to be checking us out before it scaled an almost vertical wall and wasngone. We were on the Carbon River near Wilkeson Washington. The men of our group went over tonwhere we saw it the next morning and there was signs of a large creature, very heavy. We camped therenfor several more days and heard cries that night, but not after then.
