After camping overnight near Taos, New Mexico, my son and I drove up to southern Colorado near the Spanish Peaks. When we got ready to set up camp for the night, we drove up a dirt road and saw a small motorhome parked in a pull-out on the side of the road. We pulled out the camping cook stove and fixed some dinner. No one seemed to be around the motorhome. We got into our sleeping bags and fell fast asleep. About 2am, I was awakened by all kinds of racket coming from the area of the motorhome. It was too dark to see anything out the windows of the shell on my pickup. I thought my neighbors had probably had a little too much to drink. The next morning, we drove further up the mountain road and about a mile away was a small campground. I stopped and talked to a man who told me they had a bear come into their camp the night before. That made me realize that all that noise was caused by that bear!
