I sometimes run up the canyon not far from my house. I see deer up there by the road. A few years ago a teenage boy was killed by a bear in that canyon, but not near the main road. I am always afraid of seeing a bear when running in the canyon, especially when we start before dawn. I do love that run up the canyon.
