Today was a day of wildlife! We started the day with the sound of bugling elk. It’s quite the sound to hear. As we were hiking, we could hear the herd of elk running through the forest. They made a thunderous sound as they ran and their hooves cracked branches. Our next sighting was a bear! Actually it was just a bear butt, it scared quickly and ran off. Our last wildlife experience was a mouse. It ran up the trail towards us, looked up at us and ran off. It was a good hiking day. We camped that night at a site that had a toilet and a picnic table! Sometimes it’s the small things in life! The simple things.
