Hello, I have always been intrigued with these formations. I was thinking (rather oddly) I'd like to drive out to the Lewis Ocean Bay preserve in the last week of August.

I have heard there are plenty of bears there. I'd much rather avoid bears. Snakes, insects, and such I have a fond appreciation for and somewhat enjoy the encounters with. I do not share this same fuzzy feeling with bears.

Is there any type of local guide book information as to where is a good area to explore and what to watch for?

Other than a JET pack or a howitzer what would be the best way to avoid bear areas? I am not hunting (only photography) so will not bring a firearm with me. Apparently Bears do not respond to being "shooed" away.

Thanks,
TJ

Not sure if there are guide books available and I would not be too worried about running into a bear, even though this area has the largest bear population in the State. They usually stay away from humans when in the wild, even the ones that get into peoples yards and garbage cans have never attacked anyone that I can recall.

Thanks Gary,

Dumb question, would this be the time of season where there are many young bear cubs?

I hope to get plenty of walking and photos in.

It's the breeding season, cubs are born the beginning of the year.
