We ride into the high country on a trail leading to Tworoose Pass.
We go through open country,
and aspen forests,
passing a few giant spruce.
At 10,300 feet, we reach snow.
We trudge through about 50 yards of snow, some of it 2-3 feet deep, to a wet meadow on the other side. Elk tend to hang out in meadows near the snow line. They like to graze on the first shoots of tender spring grass.
Yes, there they are!
Eventually, the elk see us.
Daisy wants to play, but they don't stay around to oblige.
