Do you guys remember the “Double Rainbow” YouTube from 2010?? A guy who calls himself “Yosemite Bear” recorded this sighting of a double layer rainbow one day near his Yosemite “suburban” home. If not, look <here>. 35 Million views and 147,000 comments. It was a hoot. I’ve seen him at the park and he takes photos and mingles with the local Native Americans.
He’s baaaack. I saw this Jennifer Aniston Commercial for a water product and there he was. No kidding. Looks like he got some air time and a few bucks.
In other news, a herd of deer mice attempted to fight back against the rampant trapping going on in Curry Village by attacking this canvas tent cabin and literally devoring the canvas covering
“They moved through like 4-legged locusts,” said Ranger Rick, quipping a John Muir phrase. With the closure of the Signature Tent Cabins, the regular food supply of dropped raisins, potato chip crumbs and salted peanuts was curtailed and forced the rodents to move 50 yards west to make their presence known. Park officials are negotiating with mouse management to reach a compromise. Film at 11.
