Back out of the mountains for a day. Roughing it was cold, windy, wet and snowy. Monday we woke up to eight inches of snow with more falling horizonally but we still had fun.
My camera did not leave the truck, so all the animals we saw escaped without their picture taken. By Tuesday some of the snow had melted, making for some beautiful contrasting pictures.
The leaves are still on some of the aspen, the brush is thick and the animals are still high. On Tuesday fog rolled in and we traveled out in the desert where we saw three wolves that were about a half mile away feeding on a dead calf they had killed the night before. Talked to the rancher and he said they had killed 15 or 20 calves this year. With the snow he was moving his cattle out of the mountains.
After a day at home, we will be back in the mountains tomorrow and Saturday for two more days in the Wilds of Idaho. More snow is predicted on Friday and Saturday - more cold and wet feet.
