Re: Tarp worries
I used the same setup as Sean on the PCT: Cuben Grace Solo Tarp + Superlight Bivy. The tarp is small enough that, in a hard rain, it's hard to avoid some splashing on your bag. So, if you'...

Looking at the second picture again, the tracks look more elongated than in the single picture above. And I can sort of see claw marks. I'd vote canid now, too, but tracking is an art, not a ...

Hard to say

Dale, I'm not sure what you were looking at, but I have the Zeiss 8x20 Conquest ($394 on Amazon). Mine are still in great shape after a PCT thru-hike, and the optics are as good as you'll ...
