Crack o' dawn start at Monarch Lake.  I bumped into this fellow.  Lucky there was a boulder to climb, or he would have tried to kill me.  He made angry noises and stomped his hooves.  I ran up to Crater Lake, but the rain forced me down.  Still a nice run.  3 hours car to car.

When I did Lone Eagle I was fortunate enough to see a moose and her 2 calves. We kept our distance and just watched while they ate. Another time I saw a moose casually walking around the parking lot at Monarch Lake. There was a little fox running around between its legs. The moose paid no attention to us. I've had really good luck spotting moose up that way but never wth a rack this big. Pretty. Sep 16, 2008
