Alas, I've returned from another successful fall elk hunting trip. And when I say successful, I mean I made it back...safely. Hiking up and down those darn mountains are taking there toll. I'm tired, my lungs ache, my knees really ache, and did I mention I'm tired! Although the elk are becoming harder to find, my son and I were able to find some other prey! Also, every year I take the TW...it snows. Years I don't take the TW...sunny and warm(er).



You'll see what type of year it was!







Here's the camp headquarters, mess hall, watering hole, and overall social gathering spot, where all the lies are told of the days happenings.

I did get a shot...of the morning sun coming up.







After spending many hours of tracking our prey, bad weather started to move in. Suddenly, we were hopeful we had found what we've coming looking for. YES Elk! Ah, but we were disappointed after closing within striking distance...an abandoned camper.







So we put away our fishing poles and moved on.

With the bad weather moving in, we decided to move to a lower elevation for more hunting action.







But not any warmer!







A little logging road action.

Ok, so if the elk huntin' action is a little slow, why not geocache hunt. We were much more successful in this type of hunting. 2 for 2!











All in all, I think son#3 would agree with me that we had a very successful and fun fall hunting trip.

That's not roughing it! That wall tent is a nice setup, and by the looks of the pile of firewood you didn't intend to get too cold. That's a nice shot of the morning sun on the snow covered trees. Where I work, about 45 miles from home we got about 5" of snow yesterday. Good to see you getting some ride time despite the snow! I guess you'll be enjoying some track soup this year. My Dad is an avid hunter, although at 80 years old he's slowed down some. Many of my fond memories of time with him are of when we've been hunting together. So, good to see you spending time with your son.
