Bear Paw Print in Yosemite NP

Up to 30,000 black bears have been estimated to inhabit California and one of them left this paw print in the snow in Yosemite National Park (that’s my adult daughter’s hand for a size comparison).  I like how you can see some of the impression left by the ends of the toenails.  There are no grizzly bears in California, with the last one being killed in Tulare County in 1922.
