Today I went and did the COMPLETE Indian Creek loop. I had forgotten how much uphill was involved. This is the first time I have done this trail in a non fall/Winter setting. It was beautiful. I left the apartment with the Single Speed, remembering it wasn't to full of hills HAHAHAHA.... yep that was wrong. I was super stoked to make this full loop, I did have a few little issues however. I blew a flat in the rear and near the end my left crank arm started to come loose ( I think from the climb on the 2.2 miles shortcut to the CT). Next time I am gonna bring the geared bike so I can ride more/walk less. Now to the pics!

Sorry Having issues with Photobucket, I will try to get the pics back up later

Cool. We were out there Sat too. Highlight was a group of us chit-chatting at the junction of the 800 ridge and Stephen's Gulch connector when a "blonde" black bear ambled up behind us, generally ignored us, and started knocking logs apart and digging for grubs.

YIKES!! :eek: I have heard about many bear sightings on this trail. I heard a lot of rustling when changing my flat, it was eerie enough.

I'm glad I got as good of a pic as I did. I wanted a better pic, but kept thinking "you don't have to out run a bear, just the slowest person" :)

Way Cool!

I ran into a bear and her cub a week ago shortly after starting up the singletrack toward the Trail 800/ CT intersection above Waterton. I ran into what appears to be the same bear and cub tonight at the same time and location on the trail. I think they're heading down for water, but who knows.

:eek: I am not sure I want to run into a bear and her cub!! Cool to see wildlife, unless they think I am a threat and try to eat me :p :D
