We ride to the top of Coyote Ridge, at nearly 10,000 ft.
A white-crowned sparrow stays put for the camera.We also see a coyote bound through the sage. A photo attempt is unsuccessful.
Daisy tries to keep up with a half dozen elk that run ahead of us, but elk are notoriously uncooperative. A couple of sandhill cranes are hanging out near some old beaver dams. They lift off as we approach.
