My Locale East of Cascades
About Me Hiking for 32 years raised in a cabin north of Fairbanks AK. Married 20 years with 4 children. Dedicated ultralight hiker/backpacker. Also long distance canoeist. I like to spend time exploring an area in depth rather than go as far as possible. Moved to Yakima in 2006. Found White Pass to Chinook Pass on PCT and that will be my new playground for the next few years.

Hw to tell the difference between black and brown bears
When you see a bear and are unsure of which they are climb a tree. If the bear climbs after you and eats you, it is a black bear. If it pushes the tree down and eats you, it is a brown bear.

It is a catch and release, never used by me. It looks very lightly used by former owner. Pm me and we can discuss price if interested. I honestly do not remember what I paid though.
