I worked on getting it larger, but to no avail. Here is the "Reader's Digest" version of what it says. There are bears out there and you should know what the signs are and watch for them. Carrying pepper spray and wearing small bells helps to deter the bears. The next paragraph tells you to know the difference in signs of grizzlies and black bears. It says that black bears leave small scat. Conversely grizzlies leave large scat characterized by a pepper smell and small bells in it. THANKS FOR THE WARNING!

The plane leaves early Wednesday & we trickle in at different times during the afternoon. We hope to be across the border before it closes at 10 PM. It will be a long day-but then a hike is planned for the next day. LET THE FUN BEGIN!
