    A nice group of little bucks lounging on the peak before I so rudely interrupted their breakfast...

      I'm not sure how I would react to that. I've had a lot of encounters with bears, but never with a sow and cubs that close.

       

      Good idea, I love seeing critters when out for a run! I'll have to look back through my photos and post a few from some of my encounters.

       

      Came across this old girl and her cubs on a local trail. Both cubs quickly climbed up trees, but she hung out to make sure I wasn't going to cause any trouble. Only about 20 yards away.

        It was a bit sketchy... Didn't even notice them until I heard the cubs climbing up the trees, since I was watching the trail in front of me. Just kind of froze when I realized what the noise was from and at the time it seemed like a good idea to pull out the camera and grab a picture. My dog was with, which I think made me a bit more comfortable. Figured he would at least distract the bear while I bailed if things escalated. It was a pretty cool encounter!

         

        This one seemed a bit more friendly...

          Awesome pictures you guys!!!  I have none!!

          I need to sign up for a race..

            A couple more of one of my favorite animals, Bighorn sheep.

             

            A group of big old rams lounging at 13,000ft

             

            These boys weren't interested in sharing the trail.

                I cannot compete with the great pictures you guys have (which I love!) but here is one of the few I have of a black beauty in PA (too bad you can only see her head).
