Bergeron took to Instagram for the first time after revealing that he was no longer going to be the co-host of “Dancing with the Stars (DWTS).” He shared a photo of him kneeling and smiling next to a notice board on a hiking trail.

The board is visible in Broadmoor Seven Falls in Colorado Springs. According to his post, the hiking trail is in an area called Seven Falls Trail/Inspiration Point.

SUPPORTING HUMAN RIGHTS

The message on it promoted the Black Lives Matter initiative, human rights, LGBTIQ+ rights, and more. In the caption of the post, Bergeron noted:

“This trail is called Inspiration Point. I can see why.”

The longtime host wore shorts, hiking boots, a t-shirt, and he had a face mask hanging around his neck. Clearly, the star was practicing the safety guideline of wearing a face mask when out in public.
