Recall my LTB sonn-in-law? Well he's hunting for a new area to hunt elk. Kind of like hunting to go hinting.
After making a wrong turn, again, and getting low on gas, we pulled into Challis and figured breakfast was would be nice. My biscuits and gravy were pretty bland but with the 2 eggs and a sausage patty that almost covered the plate, was quite filling.
Gas was nearly $3.30
AND it snowed almost continuously but very lightly.
Passable snow @ 8500. Scary at 9k!
The game count is a follows:
16 elk - on the move headed to a better place.
Too many deer to count. Almost every hay field had several. Plus several on the hill.
~20 Turkey. Tried for a road kill but it was too quick.
1 Great Blue Heron - bet he wished he were still down south!
1 cock spruce grouse - think he was looking for a/the Mrs. Gave son-in-law a second look.
Several beat up steel head - in the hatchery.
A couple of pics.
