This photo was shot last Sunday, May 3rd on Ranger Rd in Leavenworth, WA. A local favorite forest service road for biking and hiking, Ranger Rd traverses up Tumwater Mountain that overlooks downtown and rises from the west at the edge of Leavenworth’s primary residential area.

We’ve heard reports of bears in town from Icicle Rd, to Ski Hill, to Blackbird Island and Enchantments Park so it’s pretty safe to say, we’re surrounded… Though a pretty small population, they have been seen and evidence is all around. Be aware of your surroundings, and stay safe out there!
