If there is one thing in life I want, it’s for my son to be happy. There is one thing for certain, this kid is happy in nature.
The whole trip, this kid is all smiles. And its clear why…. Yosemite is one of my favorite places to explore nature. This year, on the way down, we happened to just miss sighting (and possibly hitting) a brown bear. The two cars behind me, had to stop suddenly to avoid hitting the bear who nonchalantly crossed the road. This perhaps, was a precursor to the sounds we would hear that night.
After our long drive back to the campsite, we rested, showered, and lit up the bbq to roast hot dogs. In the distance, I heard what sounded like a grunting bear. I joked about it, stating that the bear was coming to get our hot dogs. Little did I know, that the sounds of the bear would get closer and closer as the night went on. So much that we panicked, jumped in the car, and went looking for the bear.
Oddly enough we were the only ones who seemed bothered by this bear, so we went back to our tents, and called it night. Luckily, that was the last of the bear we would hear. Quite a story to remember!
Since I am usually the photographer, I don’t usually get in the shot. Luckily, one nice woman offered to take a photo for us. 🙂
