Ard,

I know it looks goofy, but there are three places where you have to cross barbed wire fences. The area is leased to cattle ranchers, but the trail itself is open to the public to allow access to the lake. The ladders are permanent structures to facilitate human crossing, presumably to limit damage to the barbed wire fences.

Larry, I bought the backpack straps from a fly shop as an accessory. The straps are made by Outcast and clip onto rings that are already part of the float tube itself. I believe all of the Outcast tubes have the attachment points so they can be carried that way. Here's an image:
