"Regarding bears.... Do I need to worry about them everywhere I go? When living in Lolo I remember reading in the papers about bears getting into town sometimes. Do I need to have bear spray/bells with me at all times?"
The Bear Bells are just noise makers, nothing more. In GNP a large can of Bear (its just a type of pepper) spray is a good plan A. Can't speak to YNP.
