CASHIERS, NC - OCTOBER 24: ****EXCLUSIVE**** The sun casts a huge bear-shaped shadow over the autumnal forest of Jackson County on October 24, 2010 in Cashiers, North Carolina. This annual natural phenomenon has become a major tourist attraction. Called the 'shadow of the bear', it is visible from 5.30pm to 6pm for around 30 minutes each day during late October and early November and is caused when the sun sets behind the 4,930-foot tall Whiteside Mountain. Tourists and photographers come from across the United States, not only to catch the enormous shadow that stretches for acres across the forest, but also to record the striking golden colours of America's famous 'fall'. Coming out of hibernation to punctuate the autumn foliage, the shadow makes a reappearance in mid-February through to early March. (Photo by Jerry Jaynes / BMUSA / Getty Images)
