    In this Saturday, June 29, 2019 photo provided by Sam Geesaman, a black bear peers over a railing on the back veranda at the Omni Mount Washington Resort just after sunrise at Mount Washington, New Hampshire. After staff made noise, the bear climbed down the stairs and returned to the woods.

    It seems bears enjoy a good view just like any other visitor to the White Mountains in New Hampshire.

    A photo snapped June 29 by an employee at the Omni Mount Washington Resort shows a black bear holding onto a rail on the veranda and looking out. The photo was taken around 5 a.m. and the employee, Sam Geesaman, said he had only wanted to get a photo of the sunrise.

    Instead, he caught the bear as it climbed stairs in search of a trash can. The bear moved on after Gessaman loudly clapped and stomped.

    New Hampshire routinely has reports of bears finding their way into homes, campgrounds and even apartment complexes.
