Colorado has Bears!
I've heard from a variety of sources that there are black bears in Colorado, but I'd never seen any until this morning. I was running one of the many loop trails above our house when I looked ahead of me on the trail and saw a mama, followed by her cub, running away from me about 30 yards away. I watched them for a couple minutes after I was convinced they were most interested in running away from me, opposed to towards me. I love seeing black bears! It's kind of rare, and they are really cool animals - wish I had a picture.
