    Way cool. Thanks for the pics.
    I have a friend out there maybe I should go visit.

    Wow! I've not been out west, but that sure does like BIG, beautiful country to hike/hang in. Well, maybe one day I'll make it out there.

    Very nice pics, MM.

    #1 - me at the trailhead
    #2 - Windy at the trailhead
    #3 - random water at the beginning of the trail
    #4 - one of many wide open meadow areas
    #5 - little valley real close to our camp area
    #6 & #7 - beaver areas

    Hmmm.... why did they come up as thumbnails? Do they only come up as full size if I have them pull from photobucket or somewhere else? I made them 600x450.

    They come up as full size if you click on them - if you want to embed the full size pictures into your post, you can use the [ img ] tags like you would if you were pulling them from somewhere else.

    No need to wait until next time - just right click on each thumbnail and choose "copy link location" or whatever similar option your browser has, then put those locations between the img tags. Like this:

    Great report and beautiful pictures! Mustardman, my hat is certainly off to you, and I can see why you use the light Aarn packs. Anybody that packs a railroad iron into the mountains for a fire ring is someone to be reckoned with!!

    Now for my 2 cents on the Quakie marks. Elk (and deer) only rub their antlers during the fall when they are getting rid of the velvet protecting their antlers as they grow, and showing dominance during the rut. Before that, they are VERY tender and the animals do everything in their power to protect them. Sometimes in the winter elk will use their lower front teeth (they don't have upper front teeth) to scrape up on the tender Quakie bark for the nutrients it provides. Deer will do the same but those marks look too large for deer. They definitely don't look like bear marks, as the bears use their claws to make long verticle knife-like cuts, as already mentioned. Sometimes the marks seem impossibly high on the tree. Remember they do this in winter, and may be standing on 4-5 feet of snow.

    Thanks again for the pictures. Temperature swings in the high country are astounding between night and day. I LOVE the high country!!!
