    Bear cruising the rainbow trail near Salida

    I came around a turn, down a hill and a bear was running down the rainbow trail away from me. Pretty cool...happy he/she was heading away from me. Not too big, real light brown. I was amazed how fast he ran off the trail and bushwhacked up a steep slope... not to be too suprised though, this sighting was not far off a road called bear creek.
    One of these days I'm gonna pull myself together
    Soon as I finish tearin' myself apart

    Bears are cool

    That's awesome. It's moments like that why I ride bikes in the first place. Glad to hear he was running away from you.

    I can't believe all of the bear killing going on in Eagle and Pitkin County's this year. Can't they send the bears to be released in Montana or somewhere less populated, over killing them when they get into human garbage?

    Funny I had my first and only bear encounter on the Rainbow Trail Closer to West Cliffe this year.

    Although my bear was bigger than your bear.
