Shouldering full packs as they hiked along in the Gros Ventre Wilderness, a group of high school students caught a glimpse of something moving in the distance. Taking a minute to look, they realized the commotion was a black bear chasing cows in a nearby field.
Most Wyoming residents have never seen such a spectacle, so this was an exciting and rare—if somewhat frightening—opportunity for the students, indeed. For many, it was their first wildlife encounter of any kind. Residents of inner-city Washington, D.C., the students were part of the City Kids Wilderness Project, which brings young urban students to Jackson, Wyoming, each summer for a real wilderness adventure.
