|The elk mamas and babies|
Because this is basically a wilderness area, wildlife is always around even though we don't always see any. While traveling through a burn area that is now open and grassy, we found a herd of Elk does and their young. This is a very relaxed time of year for the elk and they are not overly concerned with horse-back riders coming close to them and this herd didn't move too far when we rode in close.

The next day, I stayed back at camp, but my hubby and his cousin went a little higher in the hills and came across this nice little bachelor herd.
|Looking west - the trail just a little left of middle is where we rode the day earlier|
We also heard there was sign of bear and cougar, but didn't see any and that was ok as that's not always a welcome sight when you're on horseback!
Hope you enjoyed your virtual horse back trip to YaHaTinda!
