Smokey Bear Loves Yosemite

I got a chance to visit with Smokey Bear at my book signing.  He’s so pleased with how the bears are handled in Yosemite.  Problem bears are numbered, and fitted with a special radio collar which alerts rangers should one visit a campsites.  A paintball gun help discourage campground foraging.

This program and the campground bear boxes are working so well, that you seldom see a bear in Yosemite, except in the wild, which is as it should be. Gone are the days when you could visit the dump at night and watch the bears eat scraps and lick out tin cans—a very unhealthy diet for bears.  You can also rent a bear-proof canister for overnight hikes which protects your food and your safety in the back country.

I am very excited to get to visit Yosemite for a few days of camping in mid June with my daughter and grandkids.  Perhaps I will get inspired to do some writing for my newest novel which is set on apple farm/Christmas tree farm in northern California.

Blessings, PatIMG_4624

  1. Hello! I’ve been reading your website for a while now and finally got the bravery to go ahead and give you a shout out from Dallas Texas!
    Just wanted to say keep up the excellent work!

  2. Heya! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with
    hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing
    months of hard work due to no back up. Do you have any solutions to stop hackers?

    I do not know whether it’s just me or if everybody else encountering issues with your website.
    It appears like some of the written text in your
    content are running off the screen. Can someone else please comment
    and let me know if this is happening to them as well? This may be a problem with my web browser because I’ve had this happen previously.
    Appreciate it

    What a material of un-ambiguity and preserveness of valuable familiarity on the
    topic of unpredicted emotions.
