    Couldn't really get a perfect shot.
    I'm due for an upgrade w/ longer lens and firmer stability.

    I was specifically in the area to look at 2 plots of land.

    The more favorable one had a view of this glacier.

    Great pics, hick...Views like this all over the Northwest...I stumbled onto the "Hanging Gardens" one summer on an Alaskan island...Waterfalls all around us...

    Like finding the Lost World...A bear's paradise with fish and wild berries everywhere...

    Awesome images ...

    When you did that last trip, did you carry a weapon/s?

    Assuming so, what sort was/were appropriate?

    ^ yeah David.

    I was carrying a Mossberg 500 12 gauge pump shotgun (holds 6 rounds w/ 5 more on the stock), 1 full canister of bear spray, a 12" KaBar knife, a 5" boot knife and an airhorn.

    Really freaked out the family campers / RVers as I was putting my gear together in a public spot to head into the back country.


    Next trip, I'll take out the bear spray and add a handgun...probably just a simple glock.


    Also, my wife is keen to take some intensive survival courses and get a handgun license w/ a cert.

    45. wheel gun. They don't mess up, they don't jam and they'll stop a bear. I have a friend that was a guide and that's what he recommended as backup to an airhorn.

    ^great stuff Hick. It's a truly amazing wilderness that I find fascinating and fearsome in equal measure. Really good to have such excellent first hand accounts on here.

    It's kinda' funny how the locals may laugh a little at the visitor with "bear behind every tree" syndrome, YET - they'll also (9 times out of 10) be the first to advise carrying into the back country and in some cases even in standard campgrounds.

    The threats are real. Big animals get curious too. Camp and hike smartly, stay clean and be ready for anything.

    Plan for the best while prepping for the worst, quickly became my motto.

    Being an optimistic pessimist usually is the best plan...

    Pessimistic optimist, rather, for me...Bottom line is optimism...But it can be twisted any way you like...

    I've read the book and seen the movie... the guy really had a dream, it is too bad he was so unprepared and died in the end. It is interesting to see the place. I thought it would be more remote.
