See the bear's shadow

Posted By on Tue, Oct 5, 2010 at 10:36 AM

An opportunity to witness one of  North Carolina's natural wonders is approaching, and all you have to do to witness it is take a little drive.

Here are the deets:

The shadow of the bear shows up from mid-October through early November as the sun sets behind Whiteside Mountain in southern Jackson County. It's best seen on clear days around 5:30 p.m., with the show lasting for about a half-hour. Tourists and photographers hoping to see it often gather at the Rhodes Big View overlook along Highway 64, a little more than 4 miles from the town of Cashiers.

Not all natural wonders are a short drive from home, like the bear shadow. Here are a few you may have to travel a little further to see. And, you know what? As beautiful as this video is, the best way to enjoy the wonder of nature to go outside. I'm sure your very own yard is full of its own natural wonders, but if you don't spend time in it you'll never know.
