Now that is a spectacular hike. Did you notice any elk herds?
Dozens. Among the first group we passed, only one had horns, and we wondering if all the rest were females. A bit later, we passed another group where they all had horns, and a few of them were head butting each other. Guess they separate for their midday activities, with that one guy drawing guard duty for the females. We saw several other smaller groups as we kept going, too.
