Big trees and Deer and Bears. Oh my!

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.

  1. It says the videos are private. What plug in are you using for you email sign up to follow your blog? It’s nice and simple. I need to add that plug in! Joe and I went to Sequoia and Kings Canyon last year, this brought back memories. We saw a couple bears too, but only from the car!

      Whoops! They are now public – thanks for letting me know.

      As for the signup – I have no idea. I’m hosting at wordpress.com, and it’s whatever they’re providing.
