Keep the Bears Off While Backpacking
There are plenty of things to think about when planning for a backpacking trip in the national parks. A recent suggested addition to the list are bear canisters.
That’s correct – bear canisters, or so suggests Grind TV.
Says Jenny Coriell of Estes Park Mountain Shop,
“It makes sense that the screw top takes a little practice to maneuver, and don’t forget that bears like more than just peanut butter sandwiches. Anything with a smell that would attract a bear, like lotions and sunscreens, needs to go in the can. Bear cans, while they can sit on the ground, should be kept 70 adult steps from a tent.”
And remember, don’t cook or spit toothpaste where you sleep. “
