Another organizational aside ... I keep these in a binder and also included several extra sheet protectors. I use these for sorting and storing receipts. After we get back I plan to go through and run some totals to see how much we spent and on what. It would be great to do this midstream so we could make some adjustments to improve the remainder of the trip, but I haven't found time for that yet. The sheet protectors are also handy for storing maps, pamphlets, and other unavoidable paper collections.
The NPS volunteer lady was cleaning out the bear locker and was going to pitch it. I asked and I became the proud new owner! She had come by yesterday and checked our registration … some campgrounds have somebody do that every morning and others you never see anyone official. She had advised us that we really needed to keep the dogs leashed. I asked about good places to exercise the dogs since they weren’t allowed on the trails, or on some of the lakes, and had to be leashed on the campground. She suggested a trail that does allow dogs. The rules were to protect the wildlife … some dogs might chase the deer. The reason they aren’t allowed on the trails is because people aren’t faithful in picking up after there pets and apparently there is some virus in pet feces that is fatal to the wildlife. All my vet-techiness comes out there and I’m gonna have to check up on that! I do think that people need to be very careful where they let their dogs off leash to be sure their fun isn’t infringing on other people’s fun. The other reason was that bears will come after the dogs and the dogs will come running to us which will put us in danger.
