Choose a site off and away from the trail . . .
. . . the pathway could also be a game trail.
Widow makers ???
Choose smaller trees that have a health canopy of branches,
that would slow or stop a WM.
Sites beside fast water:
Gives a nice (soothing?) constant ambiance
that will drown out other night sounds
that could keep you awake all night long . . .
. . . conversely, the ambient water sound
would drown out that one sound you would need as a warning . . .
NOTE: When camping down river from Glaciers;
In BC here we had a Glacier break loose
and flowed down to a point where it damned the valley 2Km across,
and when that broke . . .
. . . no-one was injured.
I know that sounds a little dramatic . . . but,
Know the potential for overflow possibilities . . . is all.
