I just visited there for the first time in my life about two months ago, it's unbelievable country! The National Park is unworldly, and the lakes surrounding it are truly big country. If I only had a Subaru Outback, the Rangers might have given me a wink, nod and pass through the GTTS Road over the Rockies' continental divide, maybe the first human beings of 2010.

We're looking forward to dissecting Shrek's stomach when you both return...

Have you been over the GTTS Road? We went in August and there were last year's snow drifts and ice up to the road. It was officialy closed in September this year, once it snowed.

If you dissect Shrek, you might find some missing hikers...

Thanks, BuckyTom!

Donkey won't let me ride him...he's Shrek's friend!

No worries, I'll be with a group. I know better than to wander off alone in Grizzly and Mountain Lion country!

Do you know how to identify Grizzly scat?

It smells like pepper and has little bells in it!

the most important thing to remember in grizzly country is that you don't have to outrun an angry bear, just the guy you're hiking with.

and a squirt gun full of honey can help that out.

I thought that was for angry dragons and outrunning halflings.
