Man, first the fire ban and now this?
I mean, the worst night of my life was spent in BM shelter with 80mph winds at around 35deg with a wet bag.. but still.
Honestly I've seen way more tracks below woody than I have north of it.
I've never run into bears in that section, and considering the number of times I've been through, and the extreme number of rumors associated in adverse proportion(i.e. extremely unlikely B.S. stories from clowns), I'm starting to think they don't really "live 'round there.".
Anyway, that sucks I guess.
