Yesterday, we rode up 5 Mile Draw (off of the Wells Draw Road) to the Bad Land Cliffs. The elk skull above, with the rest of the skeleton nearby, suggests a natural death. Note that the elk horns have been chewed by rodents. The skull must have been there for a long time.
On the way up, we traveled through grassy meadows. We spotted an antelope and a coyote.
We found a group of these tiny cactus (flowers about an inch in diameter) growing in a meadow. I think they're cushion cactus.
On his lunch break, Boss enjoyed tasty bunch grass under the shade of a huge juniper.
From the top, we looked down on a lot of rough country and into 9 mile canyon, world famous for its abundance of Fremont culture rock art.
