Yosemite Park Warning Sign Picture

Nature can be wild.

Visitors are frequently reminded of the imminent danger in the park. Those who check in to the Yosemite Lodge at The Falls see a Beware of the Bear video that runs on a loop. There's a picture of the bear tearing in to every car that left so much as a Twinkie behind.

Similar to the sign in the picture, other Yosemite Park signs warn visitors to not be a “touron,” as insiders call them. Ranger tales of the one that got away in the fall or did a handstand on El Capitan keep foolhardy adventure enthusiasms in check.
