    Then of course there is always singing, on the trail specifically but not necessarily singing in the rain perhaps!Several of the National Parks in the USA now instruct visiting outdoorspeople to sing out loud whilst out in possible Grizzly bear country, in order to avoid nasty encounters up close and personal with these wild bears. This fact was apparently actually even directly mentioned as a good thing to do whilst out in bear country by President Bartlet - Martin Sheen - interestingly enough, I do believe; in season one of the West Wing tv show, in his character's encyclopedic knowledge of a dedicated National Parks buff conversations. lol

    The sheep there sure do seem most unconcerned though you gotta admit, Martin.I guess the dangerous wildlife would be mankind there then really, you're possibly suggesting?

    Have you ever personally encountered a killer sheep at loose in the countryside here then, Martin? I think I will stay more worried of all the ABC'S - Alien Big Cats - loose in the countryside and breeding, that feast on such sheep, any day thanks!

    Anything feasting on explosive sheep has quite a short life expectancy

    There are no wolves in Yosemite, this book provides you with some safety methods and how to prepare when hiking in bear country. For me, it's better to carry a bear canister always.
    Visit my blog HikerTrack to find useful tips for hiking, camping and survival skills.
