In 12 days I've come across five grizzlies roaming the plateau. Thankfully these are the type of grizzlies you want to be sharing a plateau with. They are primarily interested in digging up marmots and ground squirrels and don't pay any attention to people or their things. I watched as a grizz sauntered past a hunter's tent without so much as looking at it, not to mention the stash of food laying in the open. But nonetheless, when you have four months' worth of food and a longterm camp where you're cooking, it's a good idea to take precautions. I'm using UDAP's Bear Shock Electric Fence to dissuade any inquisitive bears. At only three pounds, I definitely recommend it for backpackers seeking a sound night's sleep in grizz country.
