    In 2002 summer, I saw a black bear crossing US highway 70 (a two lane divided highway ) going to Ruidoso, NM from Alamogordo, NM. The bear was so relax in crossing the street I almost stopped along with other vehicles in both directions. The bear in this picture I think is trying to get water out of the tank. Nice effort but a high resolution would be awesome. Oh, I miss Texas (specially the west)
