comment How do you make a snow shelter?
@BenCrowell: You need to be worried about it collapsing, but with the right method and adequate efforts you can actually make something that can you survive a night up there. Though, your point about suitability of the condition is very valid. But, again, the thought of an emergency shelter will naturally be one'e mind in extreme conditions only.

You just might frame it like "What are good tourist places in the part of the world where major tourist attraction is Fictitious wild species?" that just might find a place in Travel.SE. I doubt though!

This question appears to be off-topic because it is about Fictitious animals which hardly have a thing to do with most of the outdoor activities.

comment What clothing or gear should I wear to prevent ticks?
@Vorac: Yeah, that makes sense, but I so far have never risked to wait till it managed to bury itself into the skin, causing the itchy and reddish skin. You never know what that might lead to :-) So, a quick shower and a body check with a mirror does help a lot.
