Our High Adventure Trip for 2014 is to the Glacier National Park.
Dates are still being determined, but the trip should be awesome!
The area we plan to backpack within Glacier NP (the Many Glacier area) is called out as the best area (within an especially good area overall) to see a grizzly. The material in the linked article provides good info, debunks many myths, and provides good maps and info on skills for bear encounters.
Update Jan 2014:
Tentative dates for Troop 433 Trip to Yellowstone/Glacier - Tues July 16- Thurs July 24. Midweek travel dates were hundreds of dollars cheaper (per ticket, and we'll have at least 10).
We must pay $50 per ticket by Friday 1/31 to hold these seats, or we can let them go and try again. See attached for ticket contract details and later dates to truly lock in.
I'll explain more at tonight's meeting if time permits.-Hilary
