Hello White lightning 19- Man I’m glad we don’t have grizzly bears in Utah, but it’s always possible. Have you seen any grizzly bears in Idaho out trail riding?
This happened just not too long ago.

So far, knock on wood we haven't ever had issues.
Island Park is a great place to go for the opportunity to pet one and the bear population continues to grow. There's typically one or two bear attacks a year up there. Grizzlies roam up to a 100 mile circle and this is on the Yellowstone Park boarder.
This is probably going to get me roasted but problems with bears or any other wild animals come from lack of hunting. When you take humans off the top of the food chain animals loose fear of them and will attack.

If you ever seen the cans of bear spray that have the picture of the guy with blood all over his face. That’s just northwest of Yellowstone Park. That’s were we were. Only a few trails we can ride on there, but lots of bears & now wolves…a lot less elk

Spotted this fellow on the trail just leaving the flats.

Pretty sure it’s a timber rattlesnake, but they should have named it the turtle rattlesnake. He was moving so slow I almost ran him over. I thought it was a stick.

We went down by Buena Vista CO for some riding yesterday in the Four Mile area. We did Chinaman's Gulch in the morning then went up to Aspen Ridge to see some fall colors. Fun fact: Aspens are the largest living organisms on earth and possibly the oldest.

Here's my buddy working his way up one of the many obstacles on Chinaman's.

Mount Princeton on the left and Mount Yale on the right with some fall colors visible. The Taylor Park riding area is just on the other side of these mountains. Unfortunately Taylor is just a little out of reach for a day trip from the Denver area.

Another fun fact: Although the tires on the Trails and Rocks Edition are the same size, the wheels are not the same offset. My buddy had rotated his tires front to back but found out the hard way that the rear wheels will rub on the lower shock mount on the upper A-arm pretty badly. We had to rotate back on the trail.

Off in the distance you can see our planned destination, Aspen Ridge.

This guy had a really cool camping spot right at the front edge of this Aspen grove. That's a RZR parked there behind his truck.

Notice the patches of Aspens that are the same color. I think each patch of color indicates a separate Aspen organism. That green patch toward the top of the hill is one Aspen and apparently it has resolved to hold out a little longer on changing its colors. The Aspens are pretty but you still miss the oranges, browns and reds common in other parts of the country.

This is the view looking down from Aspen ridge over to Mount Antero. There are trails all behind and nearly up to the summit of Mount Antero. The Mount Antero trail system can be connected to from Taylor Park via St Elmo down to Alpine. I believe we worked out on here that the Mount Antero trail is the highest point you can legally ride to in a RZR in North America at 13,800'. The summit is another ~500 feet up at 14,275'.

Ha! Looks like you did the same “NASCAR” method of swapping tire locations that a freind and myself did up in Sand Hollow a couple years ago. He did the same thing, found out wheel offset is different.
Great pics. Thanks for sharing.
