Two hikers in Glacier National Park thought they saw a bear on a trail north of Lake McDonald Lodge. Terrified, the couple ran into the woods and then promptly got lost. The pair eventually made it to the west bank of McDonald Creek, across from the Going-to-the-Sun Road, and started a fire, presumably to stay warm and scare any bears away. Later, when a ranger found the pair he yelled across the raging river and encouraged them to put out their fire and then hike back to the trail. The couple refused, terrified that they might run into the bear they may or may not have seen, and opted to go across the river to safety.
