Felt an earthquake late last night. First I’ve felt in a long time – more than a decade? It was a shaker.
Wow! An earthquake.
Where should I hide if it’s serious…
I guess the dining room table will do.
OK. all done.
It was 5.3 about 100 miles due north.
Ellyn and I went camping in Sequoia National Park the other weekend.
We had a wonderful lazy time. Found a great campsite.
Saw some deer above the site the first evening.
I heard a shnuffling noise in the night the first night. When I lifted my head to take a look, I could hear it trample off. Figured it was a boar or something, though I had no idea if there were boar in Sequoia.
Here is the view from inside our tent at 10:40am 🙂
While wandering around the park the next day, we happened upon a momma bear and her cub. We backed off and a juvenile bear came down from our right – and right up a tree! Here’s some video of the juvenile, who was worried about Mom & cub. (full screen for best viewing)
And after he took off, here goes mom & cub down the path.
While the juvenile was up the tree, he tested the air – it was the same shnuffling noise I’d heard the first night! So I guess a bear had come to check out our camp.
