    OK, that confirms my worst fears... I'm fine with camping in the Teanaway wolf pack territory, just NO poison oak for me!

    Wolf? You sure it wasn't a coyote? I had something bump up against the bottom of my hammock on Mt. Hood last month. Growled at me. I growled back. I still don't know what it was. My hammock was too low to the ground for it to be a coyote...thinking wolverine or maybe a bobcat.

    Also, I thought you can't camp the Klickitat River Trail...or were you stealth camping? Just curious.

    Well since no one else has gone there I will, did you have any good smelling food in your hammock? By the way, I do not ask in jest, and like everyone else, I don't look forward to things that bump into me in the night.

    I am sure it was a wolf, because I saw it run up the hill in the moon light while I was yelling and clapping my hands....
    I was no way near the trail.... I was way up passed the town of Klickitat....

    Glad to hear you're ok Greenman. Cuts, bruises, rashes, bug bites, plant reactions, etc....are all a part of the outdoors.....and totally worth it, usually . I often carry my glock on hammock and overnight trail adventures for that one, unusual encounter that could happen. Ever think about packing some heat? It's great for piece of mind and gives a you and ones your with a good sense of security. Another tip is I attached a whistle to the main zipper of my hammock's bug fly......just incase I need to scare something away in the middle of the night. A little extra insurance never hurts. Thanks for the report!

    There's LOTS of critters in this country that can wander in and rumble. Coyotes, bobcats, cougars, bears... and yeah, now wolves....

    In talking with Canadians and Alaskans, they don't typically worry about wolves. Grizzlies expanding their range south in the Cascades OTOH might be the biggest game-changer we face over the next decade or so. Moose are a close second- they are at least as dangerous as any carnivore on the continent and are FAR willing to tangle up with humans.

    I've spent a fair bit of time wandering solo in remote areas in Kittitas Co along with a lot of other friends, and other than a brief adrenaline rush wildlife tangle-ups have all been resolved without problems. The only thing I might add to my kit would be a small boat horn, as I had a night encounter with a cougar where I wasn't very happy with how slowly it backed off. Given that I see cat tracks and bear-destroyed stumps on my lunch hour mountain bike rides above town, I realize that I've probably gone by dozens of both critters hiding out watching me that I've never detected, and I'm OK with it.

    JUST DON'T MAKE ME DRIVE IN SEATTLE- that's some genuinely scary stuff!!!
