The Bear was an adventure and unlike anything I've ever done outside of the USA, (I've also done Zion 100 and am off to do the inaugural Tahoe 200 in a few weeks)
What really struck me - apart from the incredible scenery was the ultra community in the US, it's a lot more established, but still really welcoming. I met people at The Bear and Zion that I still keep in touch with - the yanks are incredibly interested in the European scene, especially fell running for some reason!
If you have the time and money, then get out and do some racing in the USA - the ultra / trail running scene is massive and there are races every weekend to choose from.
