A few weeks ago, I had the privilege of hiking the area around Kokanee Glacier
. While parking in the rest area below Kokanee Glacier, I noticed chicken wire
surrounding many vehicles that were parked
. Apparently, porcupines
enjoy chewing rubber. I have also heard that porcupines enjoy chewing brake
lines as well.
Therefore, I highly advise bringing chicken wire if you intend on overnight camping in an area habitated by porcupines or you might find a nice surprise the next morning.
