We met Leonard's daughter Rose, her husband Don and our granddaughter Lili, up on top of the Bighorns today. By on top I mean that the altitude at the campground is 8,900 feet and it's just a ways from Medicine Mountain which is 9,642 feet. Leonard did great, I guess because he had his oxygen with him.
There's still snow banks in the high country. Since they haven't melted by now they'll be there through next winter.
A Stellar's Jay aka Camp Robber paid us a visit. Very inquisitive. Since we didn't have the food out yet he moved on. They sure are pretty birds, aren't they?
And a couple deer munched grass and lingered around the outskirts of the campground. I think they were just curious, Leonard says they probably are glad to see other living beings.
The wild flowers have just about all faded away, their year is over.
Apparently the Forest Service or Highway Department feels that people don't have enough brains to know if something is worth taking a picture of. These are new signs along the highway to point them out to us! It probably won't be too long before all the deer, elk, coyotes, hawks, eagles, and even camp robbers will have to wear little signs like this!! It was great to be in the mountains but it's over for this year, now hunters will be taking over and then it will give way to winter sports. Hope you're having a good Labor Day weekend. Diane
