Re: Bear Poop?

It would be helpful to have something in the pic for scale. Otherwise it's impossible to give an educated opinion, except, if that's all there was... I vote coyote or raccoon.

Re: Beginners Backpacking Recommendation Needed

I was considering Carin Basin or Paradise Park She needs to be in fairly good shape or she will not enjoy the hike. Even hiking from Timberline, the trek down and out of Zig Zag Canyon on a hot August day can be a mistake if you want to introduce your gal to backpacking. The alpine is wonderful, bu...

Re: alpine coyote

Neat sighting. Could it have been a young wolf? They have been sighted in MHNF and there may even be a named pack now. Makes more sense to me than a coyote at that elevation. Yes, but it would be very unusual for a wolf to be traveling solo in the summer, while it is common for coyotes to do so. Wo...

external bladder pocket

Does anyone have experience carrying a water 2L bladder externally (non-winter use)? I keep going back and forth between bottles in pockets (hard to reach) and an internal bladder (hard to refill).

unknown vine

This vine just showed up on a spruce tree in my backyard. Can't find it in my wildflower app. Purple flowers, red berries... anybody?
