On the second day after Kennedy Meadows I had my first bear sighting. I was hiking alone at 8:30 in the morning as the trail rounded a meadow called Big Dry Meadow. As I was hiking through the forest I spotted a black bear out on the meadow. The bear was at least 150 meters away and didn’t seem to notice me as it was busy with its morning routine. Pretty cool. Hoping to see more bears.
