Strange Encounter | High Sierra Topix  

Strange Encounter

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

The deer in Yosemite are downright tame and very curious. I had one try to get into my tent! The deer in areas where they are seriously hunted are more wary of humans. Hunting is not allowed in National Parks so the deer do not fear you.

It's funny how the dark and the unknown can play tricks with your mind.

Why didn't you just walk toward the eyes with your light on it?

I had a similar experience one night camped above the north shore of Franklin Lake out of Mineral King. But there were 5 or more sets of eyes staring at me and my brother. While my brother and I were star gazing near his tent, the many sets of eyes were close to my tent, which was a couple hundred feet away. If I approached, they would move, but didn't leave the area until I went to my tent to retire for the night. Interesting, but not anything that felt threatening.

Too many sasquatch stories tied to Mineral King!
