Surprisingly, we don't see much here in Colorado. I'm sure the noise scares them off long before we show up. What we will see is mountain goats in the mountains. But only because they are so use to seeing people. However, I did have a great experience at Rampart Range this summer. I was riding a trail (the very south end of 690 for the CO boys) and I came up on a big deer. He jumped and ran with me along the trail for quite a ways. Then he bolted right in front of me to cross the trail. I locked up both brakes and just missed him. However, by buddy didn't miss me as he ran right into the back of the bike, knocking us both over. It was very cool to ride along side of the deer for at least 50 yards.
