Mountain Lions, Coyotes and Bears, Oh My!

So guess what? We're in Yosemite National Park! That's right... home of Yosemite Sam. We drove here Sunday. We rented a house inside the park, up in the mountains. We are having a blast. Well except for first night when Marshall went out to take star pictures outside the house and a nearby bear started roaring. Roaring a lot. Thankfully Marshall went right in the house and wasn't eaten.

Oh and we have a mouse in our Yosemite house. He likes to eat our bread. We've named him "Speedy". Seamus wants to find his mouse hole (which he is sure is a little tiny arch shape) and put some cheese in it for the mouse.

And while Marshall brought his fancy cameras, I brought my iPhone! Yes, that's right. I took these with my iPhone camera.

Who needs a stinkin' expensive SLR? (not me)


  1. Have fun ~ don't get eaten by bears (too bad y'all don't have Emmett around)! ;D

  2. great shots and take a picture of the mouse hole with cheese in front... :)

  3. About 11 years ago, we camped there. We staye din one of the higher valleys- you must put EVERYTHING into a bear box. And the bears check the boxes to see if you've left them unlocked...
    And they roam the camps at night... And the only thing between you and certain death is a thin sheet of Nylon....

  4. Your pictures are great...especially the one of Marshall taking pictures.

    I would love to go to Yosemite. One day...

  5. big HUGE, stinkin' bummer. we were in Yosemite Sun & Mon. Woulda loved to have met up somewhere!!!!! How fun would that have been?!?!?!
