Road 5587 (2)

This set of photos was taken in the middle section of the trip, eight to nine miles from the gate. There were all kinds of signs of wildlife here. It’s quite wild country.

Bear tracks

These are bear tracks that were made in some mud which has now dried. There was bear scat all over the whole extent of the road, especially after the first three miles from the gate. Upon arriving back home I thought it was pretty cool to have bear scat on my bike tires: that doesn’t happen every day!

It was here where I left the bike to hike the rest of the way. I just didn’t feel right running my tires over that beautiful green carpet!

The ridge top above the road just before the road ended. Not surprisingly, there was an animal trail going up the side of the clearing. I will revisit here come elk season!

I found it difficult to leave that ridge!
