If you are going to be driving in the Sierra please watch out for bears.
Yosemite National Park reports
National parks exist to protect wild and inspirational places, unimpaired, for this and future generations. But for wild animals, even our short visits to observe and recreate can have immense effects. 27 bears were hit by vehicles in the park last year. Even with a bear management team as proactive as Yosemite’s, we can’t protect bears from careless drivers. It’s up to all of us to take it upon ourselves to remember that the bears of Yosemite spend their lives struggling to fit into our unique dichotomy of our ‘wilderness’ and the millions of people who are inspired by it each year.
