I saw two black bears last spring (2012).
The first was a smallish bear / cub - probably 50 - 75 pounds. Very near the bottom of the mountain. I e-mailed some co-workers about this sighting...
Just a few days later, on the same side of same mountain, on the same road, but a few hundred yards higher up on the mountain I saw a ~250-300 pounder right at the edge of the tree line.
I got a good look at the small one, as it was climbing a long, steep, open embankment. I got only a glimpse of the large one.
There are getting to be quite a few bears in this area.
I was, of course, riding my Wee to work both mornings.
In other circumstances (not on bike) I've seen at least three other bears here - in my lifetime.
2007 Wee. Blue. Bought at 5K miles. Sold at 32K+ miles. Gone but not forgotten.
2012 Wee2 Adventure. Black. Bought at 26K miles. Now 45K+. Love it!
