However, Bears are regulars at the cabin. Afraid i am going to walk out to the car one night and have a close encounter. They seem to give no ***** about humans.

I’ve seen them in town, by the Cherokee Grill (if it’s still there). Also in Cades Cove, where fat people hovered close by while taking pictures of the bears.

RE: Derek Wolfe is now on my personal totem
We had four bears in town this fall. In one instance, a former neighbor called to tell me that she'd been out in her back yard playing with her dogs when a bear sauntered down the alley behind her home. This was right smack in the middle of town (population about 15,000).

I told her if she didn't have pictures, it didn't happen. She said that she was so busy trying to corral the dogs and get them into the house that she didn't think of grabbing her phone. Another friend's bird feeders were pillaged and wrecked.

In dry years, bears often come down from the surrounding uplands in search of food. Country bears head for our local orchards and vineyards, and city bears go for the dumpsters behind restaurants. Pizza is a favorite. There is no history of bear-related injury here, but if bears hang around too long, the parks and wildlife folks respond by tranquilizing them, ear-tagging them, and releasing them in distant, remote areas. Habitual offenders (three strikes and you're out) are euthanized.

I live on the fringes of town, just south of the Colorado River and about a mile from the Fruita entrance to Colorado National Monument. Our trash container is outside, and I've seen bear poop as close as 3/4 mile from our house, but we've never had a bear go for our garbage. Never even a raccoon, which are plentiful hereabouts. Skunks, foxes, coyotes, and mule deer also pass through the yard on occasion but apparently aren't interested in our trash container.

I’m headed to your area in May for a mountain bike trip.
Riding from the grand junction / fruita area to Moab, and then on to the Black Dragon Canyon and San Rafael Swell area.
