I drove south today, at dawn, on Parker Ridge Road (nothing but forest, hills, and ravines the whole way). Beautiful. I was sure i’d see another bear, but did not. Saw two Cinnamon Black Bears together, out of Limestone yesterday. This is a must do side trip for anyone. Coming off of Parker Ridge is beautiful as it drops through the switchbacks to the Piney Creek; I’d say 2 miles of sharp switchbacks; finally down; you make the last drop to the Piney Creek. Did see 2 roadrunners today. Thats is 6 roadrunners this week. I came back on back on the river roads to Pelsor, Included a crossing of the river (no bridge) at it’s junction with Hurricane Creek, then back up Highway 7 to home. What a cool, sunny, but pleasant morning out. Notice, some species of trees are starting to turn yellow along the rivers and the Goldenrod is just now coming into blossom.
