While you are out camping and hiking, it’s important to be prepared, for wildlife encounters. In particular Colorado Parks and Wildlife would like you to be “bear aware”. CPW say it’s paramount to remember when you are in the wilderness, you are in their habitat. And while human and bear interactions are pretty rare; many times when people come into contact with bears, food is involved.
