The trail, and dirt roads, would fade out and no road signs so navigation was tricky. While day dreaming I missed a turn and ended up going cross country for over a mile to get back on trail. Lots of blowdowns, snow, and cow and elk bones on my little bushwhack adventure.
Several hours of on and off grapple snow falling. It's a light fluffy snow that looks like styrofoam. Saw another elk in a meadow and followed a fat porcupine for a hundred yards before he climbed a tree. Very very windy and cool today. Right before camp I came to a log bridge. Tried to cross but chickened out half way. Ended up stripping off my clothes and just walking across.
