My Locale Maroon Bells
About Me I was more of a BWCA guy but am getting into
backpacking because my wife loves it so much and
then we can do more together. On the sunset side
of 60. In 2008 and 2009 I spent more time backpacking than canoeing.

Montana bear attack
I am planning on heading out to the Martin Lake basin area with my wife and daughter in about 3 weeks. Should I be concerned and possibly look at another area?

We woke up on Aug 1 last year to 1" of ice on our tent. You want a sleep system that will get you to the mid 20's.
