Bears in the ADK.

Here is an interesting article in The New York Times about a black bear in the High Peaks Region of the Adirondacks that can open bear canisters.

Mark and I hiked and camped in the High Peaks Region of the Adirondacks in May 2009.  We hiked passed Marcy Dam (and took a group photo in a similar spot as the photo above).  We used bear canisters for our food, and although we didn’t use the BearVault, we instead used some really heavy and clunky bright yellow ones from the Cornell University Outdoor Education’s Outfitting Center.  Thankfully, we didn’t spot any bears on our trip.
