We were in that campground last year Heinrich and managed to follow a huge bull around. The rangers finally had to force him out. It was the rut and he was giving the campers something to worry about. Magnificent animals though.

Thank you Susan, we didn't see any bulls and only a few cows in the campground, I think the rangers tried to keep them out but there were quite a few just outside and behind the trailer court.

Take care,

Thank you Dave, we didn't see any deer, sheep or goats and no porcupines.

Take care,

that's pretty good Heinrich, your camping fees cover a RV spot, utilities, beautiful views of the mountains, meadows and now you show us wildlife. It doesn't get any better does it. Nice shots here too. Bob

Thank you Bob and yes that is another way of looking at it At today's prices for camp sites they ought to throw some goodies in.

Take care,
