SPORTS GUY: The longest mile

A long-standing adage in the Yellowstone area states that the longest night of your life is the first one you spend camping alone in bear country. Campers have been known to scale trees in the sake of finding safety above ground when dark skies and strange noises conspire to induce paranoia.

Nevertheless, there is certainly an aura of mystique that goes along with being in grizzly territory.
