Tent Poles Found in North Fork Canyon

Hi All,

I found a set of tent poles near Upper Boy Scout Lake. It looks like they fell out of someone's pack or they just simply left them on a rock by accident. If you're missing some tent poles from your November trip into the North Fork Canyon get in touch at the contact info below :D
