Just spent three days up in Washington's Cascades. Backpacked in for the "high buck" season, but alas, only found a doe mulie... Conditions were bad, unusually warm and dry and there was a big, nearly full, moon. No mulie for me, but I sure had fun packing in and giving it another try. Here's a few photos from the trip:

A mountainside I spent hours glassing each day:
Seems the few deer in the area stayed holed up in the cooler, green forests instead of coming out and offering me a shot. I went in after them, but movement was noisy and I didn't even get a shot... Phooey.
Still, it was a great little three-day trip. Regards, Guy
