It was a hot summer day, so what else was a bear to do but take a dip in the pool?

A California family that lives at the edge of the Angeles National Forest just east of Altadena recorded a furry visitor to their backyard.

The bear padded into the backyard Monday around noon, scoped out the pool and lowered itself in backward over the edge.

It paddled around a bit, just enough to cool off, and then got out of the pool and left the property to go hang out in a nearby tree. Eventually, the bear moved on.

The family believes they've seen the same adult bear in their neighborhood before.
