Unfortunately it was only on this sign (which I had not seen before) :
Looks like the NPS came up with a new Bear Sign last year that I didn't notice before.

The party members other than the "Goat Whisperer" ended up looking like the bear:



because:
a) we weren't hiking fast enough
b) we were goofing around too much
c) we were talking about 'that stupid forum' too much
d) we were making too much noise
e) we were 'burning daylight'
f) and whatever else she said.. I wasn't listening...

You forgot "Bee talks to much!!"

That bear sign is soo cool because they copied Goatie's expression PERFECTLY

It has not been thus mentioned, but we found four college girls who were stymied at the Yosemite Creek NON-crossing. Goatie led them (and us) out on a brambley X-country hike to circumvent the REEVER I mean creek, and then drove them all to their car so that they would be safe and sound before darkness set.

Truly a Kind and Gentle Goatie

Don't forget the unpopular pinecone fight that got a little out of hand...!

It's like: Bears tremble and hide while Bee is around -- TONs of evidence of bears, but not one single one in the fur!

I see those in my backyard. They're extremely common where I live.

The tails of the little acrobatic birds was not forked and their wings were curved back....My guess is that they were swifts, which look similar to the Starlings that inhabit all the creek areas around here.

Do Mule Deer have black tails also? I don't know if this is universal, but the ears seemed huge and roundish shaped.

Some consider black tail deer to be a subspecies of mule deer. They look a lot alike.

I looked it up. Officially Rocky Mountain mule deer and black-tailed deer are both considered "Odocoileus hemionus", with some name variants as "Odocoileus hemionus hemionus" for mule deer and "Odocoileus hemionus columbianus" for black-tailed deer.

If you check some of the articles on black-tailed deer, they apparently can eat western poison oak. As an aside, in my neighborhood there's plenty of black-tailed deer as well as one house with some prominent poison oak growth on a fence. The fence is right on the sidewalk and I can imagine people have accidentally brushed up against it (ouch). I could swear that the owner of the house wants it there, as there hasn't been any attempt to get rid of it since I've moved into the neighborhood.
