Over the past two days, I got a chance to spend time in my happy place: the mountains–more specifically in Sequoia National Park. Below are some photos from my trip.
The biggest highlight of my trip was I nearly drove my rental car into a black bear. And I got a picture. Not a good one, mind you. But good enough for someone driving a car, taking a picture, and avoiding hitting a bear.
There Be Bears Here…
During a short hike, I stumbled upon this tuft of hair in an area often trafficked by black bears. I suspect it’s a tuft of bear fur, but it could also be human hair or from some other animal that was coughed up by a bear that had eaten it. At least, those are my theories.
Do you have any idea what it is?
I never ran into a bear that day. However, on my drive down the mountain on Halloween morning, a bear swaggered across the road right in front of my car. I was able to avoid hitting it and slow down just enough to get a very bad photo.
