Bear attack in SEKI

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

Interesting. I was camped there in September 1994 and some fools were cleaned out by a bear--their 7 day trip reduced to 3 days when the bear got their food. They were about 150 yards from the downstream (N) bear boxes and apparently got too lazy their second night to move their food there.


Since my fishing (etc.) website is still down, you can be distracted by geology stuff at: http://www.fresnostate.edu/csm/ees/facu ... ayshi.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
