Bear Selfies

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.

Really, people have to be told not to do this. :\ What next, shark selfies, or maybe
some lion selfies while out on a safari.

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

Yep, people were getting pretty brazen at Taylor creek with the "bear selfies" when the salmon came up to spawn. It was only a matter of time before some would have gotten mauled.

When I see stuff like this I always say to myself "WHAT WERE THOSE PEOPLE THINKING"?

The Darwin Awards might have a new category in the future if this keeps up.
