I went for what I thought was going to be an easy, short hike the other day. It turned out my hiking partner isn't good at judging distances or knowing the meaning of "easy". After walking for two miles we had to climb up and over a small mountain to finally get to where we wanted to be. I was told this was the "easy" way to get to where we were going. I guess I should be glad we went the "easy" way! By the end of the day I thought I might end up like this elk skull.
I came across the elk antler on the far side of the mountain and the small elk skull was on the near side of the mountain.
As you can tell, I haven't been out taking many photos. I missed my chance and one of the best sunsets ever a couple of weeks ago because I was in town without my camera. I'ts starting to warm up again and I'm feeling the need to get out and shoot. I may have to put off some of my other hiking activities on hold just to take some photos.
