@Porkchop Thanks for reaching out!

First off: love your username and some of the photos you posted!

Secondly: you're likely to get some good advice from other members of the community here but to start you off I wanted to point you in the direction of a couple of threads we've had recently about bears. Please check out:

Your best bet would likely be to reach out to the land agency or ranger service that is in charge of the area you will be in and ask them what their advice is. They will be most knowledgeable about the bears in the area and what precautions to take. 

Hopefully this helps!
