And your bear-aware precautions in a lean to may be great. But the folks that used it the night before may have cooked in it or close to it.

Nicely done

Thank you for this trip report (and the rest of your site, a new find for me).

Ed,

Thanks for this. We have been itchin' to get out but have been intimidated by the reputation of black fly season. Which is funny since we of course tend to feed the wildlife in the summer when...
