EARLY RISERS

Conversation between my husband and I, a few years ago, after arriving at Sequoia National Park’s Wuksachi Lodge.

Linda: “Did we get all the food out of the trunk? I don’t want to wake up to bears raiding our car.”

Tom: “Yes, we got it all.”

Linda: “Are you sure? Because bears can smell any little thing. Even gum.”

Tom: “I think we’ll be fine honey.”

Linda: “Wait, there are some vitamin waters left in the cooler.”

Tom (slightly less patient): “It’ll be fine.”

Linda (becoming slightly shrill): “Bears can smell through plastic. Rangers told me that once.”

Tom: “Hold on a minute, it’s winter. Aren’t bears supposed to hibernate in winter?”

Linda: “OH YEAH! Hee hee. That’s right… whew.”

Linda: “… Wait! You know, there may be some early risers.”

Tom: “I’ll bring the vitamin waters in.”

When I saw the Illustration Friday theme this week was hibernate, I remembered a post I did back in 2008 while on vacation.

I remember, blogging almost every single day at the time and actually brought along with my laptop, a scanner, so I could scan and upload any sketches I did while at the lodge. Oh to be that committed again.

Anywho, I threw some color on the old sketch and reposted, once again, at the last minute.
