    Yeah, I was trying to talk myself into thinking they were from a deer, but it's the wrong time of year for the rut and they looked pretty fresh

    Thanks for the report, Mustardman! I really enjoyed the pics of all those fine high country meadows. That was some fine hammock hanging terrain. I was wishing I was there!
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    Awesome pics, MM...you're motivating me to get a better camera! Great report, too...I might take the family to visit that area this weekend.

    MM, Those marks on the trees look more like elk, they rub their antlers on trees. Bears scratch long marks with their claws, vertically. Very defined and usually smelly.

    Or a really tall beaver was snacking.

    Nice pics. Thanks

    I'm with gargoyle on the marks on the tree... fwiw.


    Thanks so much for posting these! I miss the west so much... it is great to be able to still remain at least vicariously in touch with those beautiful lands.

    Elk are definitely outside my experience - the only antler rub I'm familiar with as an east coast boy happens mostly in the fall during the deer rut. Do elk rub year round?

    Yep, they rub in the summer, kind of explains the haphazard pattern on the trees. Random shapes of antlers, random marks.
