...an extremely remote area in the mountains, where we saw this:
(One of many!)
Needless to say, I was a little bit nervous about doing my run this morning. I had my Garmin with me, and there were some nice gravel roads around the camping area, so I figured I would just go 1.5 miles one way up the "main" road, then turn around and come back to camp. So with my pepper spray in hand, I set out on my run. It was cold, but the skies were so blue and it was so eerily quiet, it was a great morning for a run out in the most beautiful, serene place. My husband and I had talked about having him pace me in the car, just in case I encountered wildlife, but when I woke up and was getting ready to head out, he was sound asleep and I just couldn't bring myself to wake him. Thankfully, right after I had turned around at my midway point, I heard the rumble of the motor, and up over the hill he came, and then I relaxed and ran the rest of the way back to the campsite.
