The fruits of summer are starting to ripen on the Boulder Trails and our Bears are thinking “Food!!” Two particularly nice bear buffets can be found in Gregory and Skunk Canyons. As a result of the potential hazard of dogs plus bears there is a new seasonal leash restriction in effect from August 15th -November 1st on these two popular doggie venues.
I was hiking on Shanahan Ridge the other day and I was reminded that the tree thinning operation is in full swing and is moving east from the Mesa Trail along the Ridge trails. There are lots of good reasons why this beautiful forest needs to be trimmed but it ain’t pretty.
