So subtle it might not even be funny. Just a quiet, introspective musing over the incongruity of the outdoors. This has actually happened to me while out hiking (not to mention the bear part) - it's always a little surreal to come across one of these, especially out in the middle of nowhere. Serves as a humbling reminder that somebody at sometime has more than likely tromped over the very same patch of ground you're standing on. Takes the edge off any "frontier" mystique.
