Just one look

Hikers enjoy one of the trails behind the Mesa Lab. The trails were closed on 16 July because of increased bear activity, but reopened two days later. UCAR Safety and Site Services urged people who like to hike during early morning or evening hours to exercise caution, since bears seem most likely during those times to expand their range from more heavily wooded areas to the comparatively open mesa. Staffers who see bears should notify UCAR Security at ext. 1139.
