Maybe Bear Spray?

26 | Aug | '21

Still very dry, lots of loose rocks on the climbs, but no downed trees or anything. Good etiquette from MTBers and hikers alike. Riders were a good mix of full-lycra doing their XC training, rippers using it to get to Duthie, and some OGs having a good time. 

On the long wooden bridge closest to Duthie I stumbled on a mama black bear and her cub on the bridge. A group of 3 riders and I kept our distance and she eventually trudged into the woods after giving us stink eye for a bit.
