Fathers Day in Mammoth

This year for Father's Day we went to Mammoth with Chad's parents. I'm not going to lie when I say I was a little nervous for this trip. You see the last time I was there, 6 years ago, I was hiking with my mom, dad, sister and baby brother when we ran into an unwelcome guest. A Bear!!! I'm not exaggerating when I say the bear was no more than 20 ft or so away from us.  We "calmly" turned around, and headed away from the water since that is where they look for food, and we waited a little while until we felt we were all clear.  This experience has haunted me every time I am out in the woods, and the thought of hiking in the same area scared me. What if that bear remembered me and decided to "get me this time"? Anyways long story short, we went to Mammoth, locals told us the bears are nothing to be scared of and we had a fantastic time. Here are the pictures to prove it.

Just his size too :)

Why use your hands when you can just dive in?
