    Were in the middle of a back country fishing and hiking trip , it's rained hard on us every day despite the forecast for nice weather . Up in this high country we have no cell signal we drove to a local town for ice and a burger and I found signal, so I thought I would post some pics .

    Had a moose in camp for two days , didn't seem to mind us or the camp fire

    We spotted a cow elk with her calf on the trail ahead of us , the calf just new born laid down beside the trail we went around and when we came back down 3 hours later , the calf was still there , I snapped a quick pic and we left the area .

    Absolutely beautiful location & family.

    Technology sure is amazing that you can post pics to the internet from places like that. :)

    Thanks for sharing, I'm really envious.

    Really enjoyed your pictures and seeing how nice a family you have! Amazing the moose did not bother you, especially with a newborn calf. Maybe she thought it was "okay" with your little ones about (or you were just lucky!),

    Beautiful scenery and congratulations to the Trout Master. Does he know how to prepare and cook them? I'll sign him up. [:)O]

    I catch and release 95% of the time , sometimes they swallow the hook and they become dinner , I have one that I caught this morning and brought home that did just that so we will stuff him with onions , lemon and seasoning salt , wrap in foil and put on the grill or coals at camp !

    Idaho rainbow trout , a cold beer , it's a good fathers day . [​IMG]
