Wednesday morning I woke to an elk bugling not far off. It wasn't quite light yet so I didn't get up to look for him. It hadn't rained during the night, but the clouds and fog were still around. The bushes along the trail were soaked and I was pretty wet from the knees down most of the morning and afternoon. Lots of up and down and several big clearcut areas. Around 5:00 or so the clouds broke up and it was back to blue skies.
