A day off in the middle of a stretch of very nice weather, and to the mountains I must go. :)
So we got out for a Mother's Day hike up Fred Burr Canyon to the reservoir -- 10 miles round trip. Beautiful weather and views made it a wonderful day!
Because the brush was too thick, there wasn't anywhere to easily get off the trail to go around him at a safe distance or to wait for him to pass us by. We also didn't know if it might be a female with cubs nearby. Cubs or no cubs, I didn't want to chance having a confrontation with any bear, so we made the decision to head back and come again another day. Play it safe and let the bear have the trail this time. :)
Hello and welcome to my mountain adventures blog. Whether I'm out hiking, rock climbing, backpacking, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, etc ... I love spending time in the mountains.
I also enjoy photographing some of these wonderful moments in time and sharing my experiences with others. You are cordially invited to come along and join me on my journey … see you in the next post. :)
