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

A photo snapped 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 5am and the employee, Sam Geesaman, said he had only wanted to get a photo of the sunrise.

After staff made noise, the bear climbed down the stairs and returned to the woods.

After staff made noise, the bear climbed down the stairs and returned to the woods.

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.

Last year, food shortages were blamed for a sharp increase in bear-human conflicts and the highest numbers of bear killings since 2014.
