Bearing the rapids. Photo taken west of Pueblo. Submitted by John Griffith of Parker, CO.

Every so often we receive a trail-cam photo that’s truly one of a kind. Check out this spectacular shot of a black bear sow and her cub. It looks like this little guy is enjoying his first swimming lesson. Who needs a Jet Ski when you can hitch a ride like this? Thanks to John Griffith of Parker for sending us this amazing shot taken west of Pueblo. Do you have interesting or unique trail-cam photos? Share them here on Colorado Outdoors Online.


  • Hi! My name is Caitlin and I’m a writer for The Dodo, an animal news website. I was wondering if we might be able to use this photo for an article? Let me know if this would be at all possible. Thank you!

    • Hi Caitlin, Thanks for your question. You may use the photo. However, please credit Colorado Outdoors Online, and if possible, include a link back to our blog. Thanks!
