The one and only time I camped out in La Verkin Creek at the mouth of
Hop Valley I hung my food from a tree. In the middle of the night I
woke to a Ringtail Cat feverishly trying to get it's hooks into my bag
of food. I'd say to hang your food.
Hopefully by the end of may the snow will all have melted and the
water level makes the Narrows accessible and enjoyable by then.
