Looking down the Mt. Roberts Trail
Route: Mt. Roberts Trail
Trail was mostly dry and in good shape. A little overgrown with grass/weeds near the summit.
Nice blueberries on the upper ledges.
Encountered three bears on the ascent. The second encounter was the closest call I've had yet - came around the corner and treed a bear cub. Mom then popped up, went on her hind legs, and growled at me. Once I had slowly backed far enough away, she ordered her cub out of the tree and they both sprinted into the woods.
