Boo to the downhill bikers that I almost had a full on collision with early this morning. You are lucky I wasn’t a bear feeding in a berry bush! Thanks to the next group of downhill bikers who were calling out, warned me of their presence, slowed down and pulled over to let me keep on climbing up the trail.
I was out surveying the berry crop. A great berry crop will provide lots of natural food for bears and hopefully result in a reduction in human/wildlife conflict. If you are out berry picking, hiking, or biking through berry patches be prepared and expect to encounter bears anytime.
Thanks for helping keep wildlife wild and communities safe and practicing good multi trail use etiquette.
