Excellent point. Forgot to mention we left all the stuff we didn't take on the peaks, up in the trees.
What do you mean by critter raid? My husband and I are heading to Chicago Basin for a week soon. We always bring a bear canister each for our food (great not only for preventing bears from getting into food, but also for marmots and mice). We also hang whatever leftover food and toiletry items don't initially fit in the canisters on longer trips. Are you saying that you had to take down camp and hang all the gear you weren't hiking the peaks with? Tent... sleeping bag... everything?
I have heard about the goats. Do they cause problems with gear?
