ESTES PARK - A bear in a tree captured a lot of attention in Estes Park Friday. The bear spent the day in a tree along Highway 34 near many businesses.

Several people called 9NEWS about they bear. They told us dozens of tourists gathered to watch the bear and take pictures.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife roped off the area. They're hopeful the bear will come down on its own overnight once the crowds have gone home.
