... to protect them from the logging companies. We eventually dragged ourselves away from the film and carried on through the rain. At Myers Flat we took a little detour to go through the 'drive thru' tree and look at some bizarre tree houses. Again, all a bit touristy.

She'd captured one up a tree with an apple in its mouth. We then got lots more warnings about proper food storage etc and what to do if you come across a bear.
Hopes high of possibly spotting some elusive black bears, we pitched up at ...
