[pct-l] Bears

There have been a few sightings of Grizzlies in the North Cascades by PCT'ers
over the years.  However, I am not aware of any encounters that caused harm
or loss of food.  Of course, when in Grizzly country, taking no chances is
good common sense.

The person who introduced me to the PCT and hiked it in 1975 took a wrong
turn just south of the border in a light snow.  When he realized his mistake
he backtracked to find Grizzly footprints in the snow, stalking him for about
a half a mile!
