The sunshine met us early this morning.
This jaunt revealed no elk this time around… although I heard one way off in the distance… and at one point their musky odor surrounded me…
I continued through my favorite aspen patch… only a few leaves are golden yellow…
Although the calves didn’t realize it, this was their last day with momma. But what a wonderful day!
Before they knew it, the semis arrived, and in short order, the calves were loaded and hauled down the mountain.
We made it off just in time for a good rain shower. Tess and I watched from the pickup as the guys helped unload. We’re really sweet, y’know? Gotta stay out of the rain!
Another day of weaning is now complete!
