We first spotted a mother and cub on the side of the road. The cub was playful while Mama Bear was looking for food. Later that day, we spotted another bear in a meadow in the Giant Forest area. He was in a meadow eating grasses and roots, near the trail we were hiking on. When he left the meadow, he was a close as 50 to 60 yards from us and walked a little toward us before he went into the forest to look for more food in trees that had fallen.

    1. It was an amazing moment – almost surreal. We got scared for a minute as the bear walked in our direction (no footage available, we were backing off!) then went into the forest. We got so lucky!

  1. What an amazing animal and fantastic spot by you, real cool to see them that close in the wild. Must admit, I would be more that a bit scared, don’t mind admitting it but still, an amazing sight. Cheers Alan

    1. Thank you for your comment Alan! We were not being brave either. It just happened to get close to us, not the other way around. I was hypnotized by the bear, how big and beautiful it was. It was such an incredible moment!

  2. Awesome capture of the bears on video! ๐Ÿ‘๐ŸผA group of us were on motorcycles riding through Sequoia NP and we stopped to watch a yearling bear. As we were stopped I realized mama bear could be close by, so we all took off! ๐Ÿ˜Š

    1. Thank you so much for your comment and support! Clever that you were aware of your surroundings – no one wants to see a mama bear appearing out of nowhere ๐Ÿ˜… What a great moment you had in Sequoia, thanks for sharing it! ๐Ÿ˜Š
