    Overnight on Black Questions

    Looking to do an overnight up on top of Black/ClawHammer.

    Is is safe/legal to park at the ranger station?

    Do you hang your food from a tree for bear safety?

    Thanks,

    Eric 2

    Yes to Ranger station.
    I have never done anything special for bears/food storage and never had a problem. This is not a guarantee that one could not happen.
    If you stay at the shelter, there's a lot of rodents that make a living off eating campers' food.

    There's no law that says you have to, but you'll wish you did if a bear happens by. Do it - it's worth the extra time/weight to not have one of those suckers rousting you out of your tent. And you may ultimately save a "problem" bear from ever becoming one.

    There's no good reason not to hang food so might as well.

    You're more likely saving your food from other critters, but either way it's a good practice.
