On the exit creek walk, one teammate brushed against a hard-to-notice wasp nest and got stung. He wasn't allergic, doused it in the cold creek, and was fine. Last year, there was a substantial wasp nest mid-creek. So, submitting this incident report because it seems to be a notable hazard in LeBar.
