Elitest thrill junkie
Oh there's bears alright. Saw one on our ride on Saturday there, but 4 the week before on the same trail.Upper Russian Lakes trail on 6/10/16. There is section where run off has turned the trail into a creek, otherwise, the trail is in great condition for this time of the year. Plenty of bear scat scat and a couple old prints.
Guy was not in our group, but I might have gotten a picture of the ladies. I remember two groups of hikers when we were coming down Middle Fork, one had a few dogs, the other were some older ladies, seemed nice to us, but then again when I'm leading a group, I always give the hikers/uphill riders the benefit of the doubt and stop. I don't try to ride around like a jacka$$.That guy with the splaining to do was the subject of a post on the anchorage fatbike Facebook page. Guess he bombed through a couple of elderly ladies on a hike.
