Looks like really nice area around there! How is the wildlife on those hikes - can you meet deers, goats, or... bears?

It's great! Not sure about winter wildlife but you can usually see deer, goats, elk and occasionally moose (be VERY careful, they can charge), - and some of the posts in the guide also outline caution needed because on some you will also be in bear, coyote, cougar and rattlesnake territory. But as long as you maintain a very minimum of at least 25 yards away, you should be good! Just use caution!
