Hi Tom, I too have spent time on the Tahoe Rim Trail(North&West
Shores), in addition to parts of the Tahoe Yosemite Trail, and Pacific
Crest Trail. I was reading some literature on the area when I came
across a section that said Tagged Yosemite Bears had been known to
Travel all the way up to Tahoe. In all my years of back country travel
in the area, the counter balance method has worked(with several
attempts made by the bears all ending up in no food). Hopefully this
will continue to be the case!!
