TT, where do you live? I'm pretty sure I'd shit myself if I nearly hit a bear.
I live in Maple Ridge, about an hour East of Vancouver.
The blueberry's are right by Pitt lake.
Pitt Lake & the valley behind it, goes all the way to the backside of Whistler.
From the north end of Pitt Lake, you can hike along logging roads & get to Whistler, but there is no way to get a vehicle back there.
There is a hot spring back there that someone has turned into a couple of hot tubs. They used forms and concreted 2 pools, One drains into the next one.
The first one you could cook in, the second one is usually perfect but there is also a glacier fed river right there so if you start to cook yourself or you need to add cold water to the tubs you can.
There is a pics of the hot tub here Pitt Lake Hotsprings
I'm sure every bear in that roughly 40km long valley makes the trek for these blueberry's, they are the size of a quarter & they taste incredible.
I feed them to my neighbors dog, she'll keep eating them until I stop feeding her & my cat is dead now but he would eat them as well.
I would love to hit a cow, there just isn't that many wild Rockey mountain cows running around. I'd be havin' steak tonight.
