    Grand Ridge Bears

    Saw one on RR grade, group of walkers saw another just before I got there. Trail is in great shape.
    There's a big difference between ripping and skidding. Those who skid don't know how to ride.

    Let's just hope they don't find the pile of garbage bags left over from the Duthie festival.

    Word of a break in at High Point parking lot, lots of stuff stolen. Much better to park at Exit 18.

    Is this really news?

    Who ever had "lots stolen" is an idiot to have "lots" in their car when out on a hike, ride, or whatever.

    The hikers on the other side of the freeway at High Point have break-ins weekly unfortunately.

    Dang, I was all excited to tell everyone about the coyote I saw on Pink Ribbon this past Sunday. Maybe I'll keep quiet about that instead

    Grand Ridge Bears

    Borneo and I had a grouse feign injury on the Snoq MF road this last weekend which lead to another coyote Tokul story. I was riding the skidder road section of Golden Spike when a coyote jumped onto the trail about 100 yards in front of me. It kept looking at me as it ran away from its point of entry. The coyote "lead" me down the skidder road for probably a couple more hundred yards then ducked back into the woods. I thought it was odd behavior and searched the interwebs that night to discover that coyotes will also try to pull potential threats away from its young.

    Cheers,
    Mike

    This is fun. My best coyote story. Riding a fire Rd down in Cal. when I hear crashing in the manzanita next to the road. Out pops a coyote being chased by a deer. They go about 50 yards down the rd, and the coyote dives back into the bushes with the deer hot on its tail. I guess deer have their own special way of dealing with potential threats.

    My favorite coyote story has nothing to do with mountain biking:
    Stranded overnight on a spire in Sedona, AZ on a full moon, spent most of the night watching the coyotes chasing rodents on the ground 250 feet below us. They were LOUD, there was no sleeping due to the commotion.

    Hey, look: I am Coyote!

    I'm a little late on this one, but I brought out a friend for a ride (out and back) and saw the **** on the trail on the way back. Pretty fresh. One of these days I'll see him/her and give it a poop bag. after all, I have to pick up my dog's poop.

    Here's a critter I saw this evening. Pictures are not too great. This is as close as I wanted to get. This is on the road between the bottom of Safety First and top of Gun Range at Tokul east. I made a bunch of noise and acted tough but he was totally unimpressed. Then I turned around and went another way to the top.
