Grizzly Country

We finished a two night back packing trip in The Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming. We made sure that we were extra careful during this trip and took Leave No Trace practices to the highest level. We drank our left over spaghetti water and swallowed our natural tooth paste instead of broadcasting our grey water. It didn't feel right to leave these scents around in Grizzly Country. We didn't want to compromise our safety and the safety of other campers in the area by being careless with our waste. We were also told not to wear our cooking clothes to bed because you might wake up to an unwanted visitor. So we packed a cooking set of clothes and a sleeping set. There are special measures that we all need to take when hiking and camping in bear country and we urge you all to contact the visitor center or land manager in the area you plan on recreating in to get the latest updates on bear precautions. Enjoy the pictures.
