Lodgepole Campground, Sequoia National Park
Beautiful scenery, interesting wildlife,
unparalleled company, delicious food,
some laughter, some tears...
We were told not to approach the bears, but when Miss Bee and her daddy spotted this forlorn creature at Wuksachi Lodge, he appeared to be trying to sober up (there was coffee in the cup next to the empty beer bottle) so they felt compelled to befriend him and offer some kind words of encouragement.
In a few years we'll plan a bigger gathering for all the cousins to be together in the wilderness. What a hullaballo that will be!
