<< washington state - snoqualmie to manning park.
any recommendations on bear canisters? there doesnt see to be too many
choices. i found about 3 on-line and they are all about 2.5 pounds.
any tips or suggestions would be appreciated. >>
Suggest you leave the bear canisters at home if they're not mandated in the
area you're hiking. You might check out an Ursack (4 or 6 oz.) as a
compromise, along with using normal precautions to avoid bear problems --
i.e., stealth camping, not sleeping where you cooked dinner, etc.
(www.ursack.com). I have no financial interest in Ursack but have a couple
which I intend to take on the JMT later this month.
