Bear Spray, Bear Bells...August 19 2010 at 8:40 AM
Response to Granite in September
Mark, just remember, as you walk along with your bear bell jingling and your bear spray clipped to your belt...
(insert tongue firmly in cheek)
When you come across a pile of bear scat in the trail, how do you tell whether it's from a black bear or a brown (grizzly) bear?
Simple...kick the pile apart...if it smells like pepper and has bear bells in it, it's from a grizzly!

Seriously, good luck on the SW Couloir...we'll be waiting to read your report and any additional bet on route finding, etc.
