What an amazing place to hike. Probably gonna make at least 3 more trips here. I took Amtrak there so I had no car while in the park, 12 nights backcountry and 87 miles hiked out of the 700 miles of trail there. Saw a couple bear, had a 3rd scare the hell out of me one night and took about 600 photos. Had a few very sketchy hikes in thick vegetation solo. Only bearspray, my wits and awareness. Only got rained on at night 3 times. Here's a few shots of the trip.
I was awoken at around midnight to a lot of snorting and grunting. I opted to stay quiet with my bearspray at the ready and my knife to cut myself out of the tent. Heard a couple of audible thuds and just stayed calm. Managed to fall back asleep and snapped this photo in the am. You can see where the bear moved logs while rummaging around. This was basically at the head of my tent.
All in all a mindblowing trip, i'll probably be adding more to this review but at a later date. I have lots of gear to comment on as well.
