We hiked through the valley until it was basically dark and then we set up camp and immediately went to sleep. We had quite the scare in the middle of the night when waking up to Teeko growling threateningly and low barking, I was sure it was one of the grizzly bears we had read about on the sign the evening before that had come up from the valley. Luckily when we checked it out it turned out to be just a (very large) porcupine!
