Bear on the road to Uncompahgre

Postby yogi » Mon Sep 30, 2013 3:35 pm

Not sure if this is a common occurance, but coming from Dallas, I was quite pleased to spot this little fella right on the road from Lake city to Nellie creek trailhead. He crossed the road just in front of us and ran up the hill once he saw our car

Did the poor bear make it to the top? Was it smelling the cooked food up there?

Just spent a good part of the last week at the confluence of Nellie and Henson ... perhaps he wanted some of my oatmeal :shock:
