Night Chocolate

Boulder Creek Watershed, CO

A chocolate-colored black bear sow travels a dry creekbed in late summer, a riparian highway secluded from the human rat race nearby. Situated on Boulder Open Space, I've been amazed by the number and diversity of predators and scavenger species traversing the waterway, tucked into cottonwood gallery forest and the cover of night.
