    Rapid weather changes

    Be careful even when taking the easier short hikes around the main lodges. The weather changes quick and you can find yourself drenched before you know it. Some bridges will be knocked out following spring thaws and there are plenty of signs advising this at the trail heads but beware that if you decide to ford a creek, it may be a river by the time you return to it. Found out the hard way just how slippery some rocks are when wet!

    Beware the hidden dangers of perfume

    by Dxenion Written Dec 25, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    For tourists and casual hikers not familiar with living/ moving about in bear country:
    A local informed me that bears and cougars (especially in Spring when they have youngsters) are particularly sensitive to perfumes found in soaps, shampoos and deoderants and you may find yourself receiving more attention than you ever intended. Pay particular attention to posted signs at trail heads advising what action to take when confronted by these animals.
