Leap of Faith

Cries came out of the forest in Yellowstone National Park. I came across a black bear sow and her two cubs. The second cub was very reluctant to follow mom across this fast flowing mountain stream. After 45 minutes of the mom trying to persuade the cub, she eventually went for it and made it across safely!
