We ran into a bear (but not a grizzly) at Yosemite

My daughter, who was 11 at the time, had been frightened about hiking because of the possibility of bears, so we had her outfitted with a bear bell, and on one of our hikes, while making our way back to the trail's entrance, we can across a large bear print in the soil, then saw a bear lurking maybe 50 feet away in the woods. Fortunately, it was my son (who was 8 and not scared) who first saw the print and the bear, the bear stayed away, and my daughter was oblivious to the close encounter. There are no grizzlies in Yosemite so I was not especially concerned.
