    Here's a site showing many more pics of 399 and her cubs. (This time by REAL photographers!)

    Here is her story (including the attack last summer). Its a good read and I highly recommend it. Its on PDF, but you can enlarge it to read it better

    Nothing worse than bumbing into a sow and her cubs.
    Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.

    A friend of mine was camping at Yosemite. They had their tent about 20 yards from a stream, where the kids were playing while Mom and Dad were doing camp chores. My friend (the dad) heard a high-pitched keening noise, which quickly rose into a full-throated, air-raid siren, scream. A bear had crossed the stream and was travelling through their campsite - between mom and the kids. According to my friend, when the scream started, the bear looked up to see what the noise was. He saw the woman, looked around in some confusion, then saw the kids. He looked back and forth between the woman and the kids a couple of times before recognition set in. "Holy Cripes, I'm between a mother and her cubs!" He left the campsite in a full, rolling gallup.

    Yeah, that bear doesn't know how close he came.

    Good call on the burgers at Billy's. I don't know if it's considered touristy, but for breakfast, I always used to stop at Nora's in Wilson on the way to JHMR.

    Amazing stories of three bear sightings. Most people are lucky to see on on the next ridgeline over, if at all. Thanks for the pics. Awesome stuff!

    Nora's is great. Try the lamb at the Blue Lion for dinner. Mountain High Pizza is good but believe it or not the pizza at Dornan's is even better!
