Missing permit?

Postby balzaccom » Fri Aug 12, 2022 6:37 am

Well, at least a chipmunk ate my permit on my trip to Twin Lakes. Pretty funny, really.

Not so much for another group, who got sent back out to the trailhead. What knuckleheads.

You can read the details here--complete with photo of damaged permit:

People without permits or bear cans are either ignorant or willfully ignorant, very frustrating.

Did the chipmunk get anything else? I guess I'm fortunate, I've never had that problem. But maybe hiking with a dog helps. :)

Only the permit...nothing else.

I think we were lucky on that one

I always take a picture on my phone of both sides of my permits in case of situations like that. :)
