After breakfast, we packed up again and moved another half-day's ride to a beautiful river-bottom meadow. Easier going today because our packs were matched up better. Yesterday's experience taught us some lessons about matching bulk as well as weight.
Pretty fair fishing around here where we are camped and tons of elk sign. One student took a hike up toward a nearby lake and got turned around, but ended up getting within 50 yards of three 6 point bull elk in the velvet. The rest of us went out at dusk and saw a herd of cows and calves.
