Baby Bear, Hetch Hetchy photo

Baby Bear

A mama bear and her three cubs lived in the trees overlooking our campsite. We didn't choose this, they moved in after we did. The mother bear would send her cubs up a tree for safekeeping when she had to leave them to make her rounds. Except for occasional quality time with mama, the cubs spent most of the day and night living in the trees.

If you camp in the Yosemite backcountry, be sure to bring a bear canister and secure all food, trash and toiletries.
