Insignificance and Grizzly Bears

I recently had the opportunity to spend a week in Northwest Montana exploring Flathead Lake, Kalispell, and Glacier National Park. If you have never been there, I highly recommend it. I'd be glad to offer some pointers if you decide to make the trek.
While I was there, we went on a hike. It was amazing to be surrounded by so much scenery. The mountains are incredible! As for exciting things, we came within 20 yards of a mother moose and two calves. For the uninitiated, that can be scary, as mama moose are very protective and they'll kick you into next week. So we backed away quietly and quickly, and they went up into the brush.
On we continued, only to have a grizzly bear come up the trail behind us about 40 yards away. That was also exciting.
All this to say, being in a place like Glacier National Park, surrounded by ancient mountains, where moose and grizzly bears have the top of the hierarchy, I felt small. Insignificant. A mere spec.
And that wasn't a bad thing. As a matter of fact, that is one of the best things about that entire trip. 
Feeling small has a tendency to put your life into focus. And that is what I needed. 
When was the last time you had a chance to feel small, but in a good way? I'd love to hear your story.
