Yesterday we did a big loop. Went out the 120 towards Mono, then left on 395, and then towards Sonora Pass. Pretty awesome and saw some campgrounds I've never heard of before. Some completely packed, others literally empty.

I believe I've seen the one you spoke of Lee Vining, we've thought of that one as well.

Funny side note, ran across a bear in the campground (Porcupine Flat), eating peoples soap and what I believe is scented candles.

Maybe momma found him cussing that they didn't leave any real food and was washing the cub's mouth out!? :lol:

Haha. This was a pretty big bear, and the only one out there. Funny because I was planning to ask if all these photos of bears in Yosemite were photoshopped, being I've gone up there just about every weekend, if not more, since the middle of January. Then ran across it.

It was a pretty big bear in my opinion, but you all might know more than me. I figured it was somewhat young, but obviously not a baby.

Great looking bear, but I would like to see a picture of the idiot campers that left their soap and candles out where the bear could get to it.

I left a note saying "A bear was eating your stuff, for pictures email me" LOL.

Here's the campsite. Most of the stuff he was messing with was on the bear locker. Candle. Soap. Wine bottle of some sort (opened). Etc.

nice pics and a happy and healthy sized bear. Lucky the ranger didn't stop by before you and leave them a nice citation.
