California is known for many things. One of the jewels of The Golden State is beautiful Lake Tahoe, where thousands of people visit every day. Another thing California is know for is bears. And sometimes...those two things come together.

Lake Tahoe straddles the California/Nevada border right on the edge of Yosemite National Park. It would stand to reason that thar be bears in those woods. It would also stand to reason that those bears get hot and wouldn't mind a cool refreshing dip in the lake on a hot summer day.

You would figure that they would want to stay away from people...and people would want to stay away from the bears. However, this mama and her two cubs were not giving any thoughts about it this day. They wanted to play in the water...so they did.

Check out this video of these black bears enjoying some beach time VERY close to where people were doing the same.
