Seven Bears
















video
Got up at Dawn...the Chorus in full voice...and put my levis, still wet from the other day, in the laundry...then curled up...woke up...put levis in the dryer..and back to sleep.. woke up with just thirty minutes left before the Hiker's Bus would leave....almostalmost went back to sleep again...but managed to get everything together...and while waiting for Bus on a bench, Blue Jay was posing in the Morning Light...but flew off before I had camera ready...and then I saw the Ground Squirrel...pic...and I really like the pic...I was fooling around with the Tuolumne pics...putting them into Grey Scale...and thought to do the same with the Squirrel...I reallyreally like the pic!...anyway...it was fine day trip up to the Meadows...saw four Bears on the way up...three by Crane Flat...one at White Wolf...and on the way back saw the Mama Bear and Cubs just before Crane Flat...and at Crane Flat the big Cinnamon Bear was still there still...and one of the Blond Bears...the other Blond may have been there too...all in all, we saw nine Bears from the Bus if one counts the repeats!...Marmot at Olmstead Point...and another on the Road to Soda Springs...here and there saw like twenty Deer in the Meadows...managed after much effort to get a digi clip of Picket Pin...for sometime...a few bird pics...Junco, Sparrow, Rosy Finch(no, Cassin's Finch...it has a Rosy Head!..but I inagine the Rosy Finch is a rare sighting in Tuolumne, but maybe not..common, book says, on East Side)...and the Cloud pics....Clouds really set off the Peaks...I made a loop from the Tuolumne Bridge along the Dirt Road to 1915 Bridge...a spur there up the Dirt Road further...and out the Meadow to the Road...couldn't go direct to the Store...Use Trail too wet...I made almost the same identical walkabout I did last year on the first trip up to the Meadows!...a bookend...thought to see if I could get a Tent and stay the night...but it looked to be a storm coming...and I was so sleepy!!....so was glad to come back to the Valley...thought I saw the Young Owls from the Bus going by Chapel Meadow...and hopped on the Bike at the Cabin, and peddled back to looksee...I dont know where they are now...hmmph...hungry and had dinner...vegi burger...levis have shrunk..or something...and went to sleep..cloudy cool breezey...and mosquitoesmosquitoesmosquitoes....take a head net...a body net!...and every mosquito repellent known to Man!!...some blurry pics of Mama Blue Jay feeding the Babies while waitingfor the Bus too..for sometime...Hi Jeannette...thanks for visiting!...the desktop with Windows Vista isn't showing the Followers icons...on the Laptop XP they're okay...I get a little lost with these things sometimes!....I think I have recollection in order now!...Robin was first Follower hereabout...and Jeannette most recent...and what I need to do is make a Followers' blogs link page...from there I can open sites..and back and forth with back and forward arrows...it's difficult to drill down into the menus that open with the icons!...and I'll have to make an active blogs page..and one for the sleepy ones..

Why thank you for the link. I sent your address to some friends. I still haven't explored all your older posts. I might save them as treats and do them one at a time when I have sit down time in between my own adventures.
