There’d been a bear in the launch area earlier that morning. It got tasered by a copper so crossed back over the river, walked 200m down the riverbank before coming across again. They are after every last calorie before they go into hibernation!

Day 42: Steamboat to Lynx Pass campground

My first bear hang! Thanks to Sean for the rope and carabiner. Was a mother and cubs in the area apparently but no sign of any animal life bar a squirrel shouting at it in the morning.

(I’m ashamed to say there may have been crisps floating in this at the end of the bathing session although, in my defence, I was still engaging in salt replacement after being ill and it’s the first time I’ve ever eaten in a bath)
