It’s important to be bear aware. There are black bears and grizzly bears and if you’re lucky there might be panda bears. A Humboldt County Sheriff recently discovered a new type of bear: falling bear. While responding to a call of a drug overdose, a sheriff's police cruiser was struck by a falling bear. The impact destroyed the windshield, causing the cruiser to drive into an embankment and then roll over, which set it on fire. The fire started from the car then spread to the surrounding area, causing a small forest fire which was contained to 2,000 sq meters.

Perhaps there was a cougar nearby, and the bear wished to impress the feline with its parkour. We will likely never know, but one thing is for certain, we will keep our eyes peeled for falling bears from now on.

It might not be the biggest snowcat, but it sure does look snazzy. Panorama photo. Panorama Mountain Resort, located in southeastern British Columbia, nearly has more double-black trails than greens, blues, and blacks put together. As such, it should come as no surprise that they are also planning on operating an inbounds snowcat called "Monster X" to access far-flung, though fully avalanche-controlled zones in Taynton Bowl, located in the northern, AKA upper-left portion of the mountain. The
After overcrowding issues during the 2019 Everest climbing season led to deadly human traffic jams, the Nepalese government proposed new permitting rules for the climb. Under the new rules, prospective climbers would have to prove that they summited another major peak and guiding operations would be required to prove at least three years of high-altitude experience elsewhere before setting foot on Everest.
