Ascent Trip Report

Loop hike, up Falling Waters Trail, along ridge to Mount Lafayette. On way down above treeline before hut looked back up, spotted a large bear grazing above treeline.Started back up rock hopping off trail to get a better look, came up over a knoll to see a bear 75 feet from me galloping away, stopped at treeline, looked back at me with his nose up in the air for about a minute or so to get my scent, then ran downhill fast into the woods.
